For this reason, around 1.20 pm today, 17 September, the operations room of the Harbor Master’s Office – Venice Coast Guarddue to the disappearance of the windsurfer, at the height of turret 39 of the Cavallino-Punta Sabbioni beach. The unfortunate, left with two other windsurfers from the coast, at the height of via Retrone, a meeting place for enthusiasts, was seen to go about 500 meters from the beach and then disappear from the sight of his fellow adventurers. These, returned much further south, due to wind and currents, gave the alarm after having waited in vain for the return of their friend.

In a few moments, the exit of the CP 2095 patrol boat and the GC B122 boat was prepared for patrolling the coast from Cavallino to Lido di Venezia. The research also involved the coast from the ground through a ground patrol by Circomare Jesolo. In consideration of the high visibility of the fuchsia sail of the missing sportsman, the availability of the Drago 149 helicopter of the fire brigade was also requested for a patrol from above. About an hour after the start of the search, the operations room was contacted by a boat from Swiss boaters, which were at the Lido inlet, which they said they had recovered the windsurfer and his equipment offshore. The patrolling units then arrived and found that it was the missing 35-year-old from Treviso.

The boat with the surfer on board was escorted to the refuge port of Punta Sabbioni where it was recovered by his companions who had been alerted in the meantime.
