Rome, Italy

Offshore sailor, Pasquale LANDOLFI (ITA) has died at the age of 76 in Rome, Italy following a heart attack.
After a very successful career in the oil business, he became, over the last 25 years, a renowned offshore sailor. He sailed his many impeccable dark blue 'Bravas' at the highest international level, winning several prestigious trophies including the One Ton Cup in 1989 in Naples, Italy and in 1992 in Skovshoved, Denmark, and the Admiral's Cup with the Italian team in 1995.

He involved in his campaigns a couple of generations of the best sailors of the world, getting the highest respect and continued affection from them all.

His strong and loyal character was well known in the International Organizations he was part of. He served as an Offshore Racing Council Congressman for many years, always fighting very hard for the Classes he was representing, the One Tonners first, then the ILC 40 and the 50 footers. His repeated claims to send a 'clear message' to the sailors will not be forgotten.

Pasquale was appointed to the ISAF Oceanic Committee in 1998, and served from 2000 until 2004 on the Offshore Committee and the Oceanic One-Design Sub-Committee.

He leaves wife Iannuaria daughters Marina and Gloria and son André. The funeral will take place in Rome on Friday 3 June at 10:00.

ISAF extends sincere condolences to his family and friends.
