Very sad to see that Fabio Buzzi has lost his life whilst competing in the Monte Carlo to Venice powerboat race.

Buzzi was a larger than life character who has made a huge contribution to power boating, over very many years. He will be sorely missed in the industry.
RIP Fabio. Condolences to all those close to him.

Fabio Buzzi was a true gent. I met and chatted on several occasions but most memorably on CTC ‘08, just after the Round Britain. We were preparing Miss Daisy and he wandered up and said ‘This was the most beautiful boat in the race’...... A man of taste as well as huge ability!
Still shocked at the news...

An interesting obituary in the Telegraph, many things I didn't know about him.
