It is with regret that ISAF advises the passing away of Mr Nar Patti Datta from New Delhi, India on 10 October 2003 after a tragic car accident.
Mr Datta was a past ISAF Council Member representing South and Central Asia from 1994 to 1998. He was very committed to the sport of sailing and its promotion in the Asian Region, and in November 1998 was presented with an ISAF Silver Medal in recognition of his outstanding voluntary contribution to the sport of sailing.
An ISAF International Judge since 1986, Mr Datta had served on numerous juries, including more recently for the ISAF World Team Racing Championship, H-Boat World Championship and Enterprise World Championship.
ISAF extends its condolences to Mr Datta's wife Mrs Uma Datta, family and friends.
