Stefano (1958 - 2015)
Dear Friends,

last night, Stefano left us.

His strength was not strong enough against the cancer

Maybe some of you never met him: he founded the S&S Swan Association with me in 2000, in Venice, and has been the most beautiful person I have ever met.

He was a great sailor, the best friend you could hope to find in your life, loved his Oracabessa. I'll miss him

Fair winds Stefano!

Dear Matteo,
Heartfelt condolences to you, and to all of those close to Stefano and his family. His S&S Swan family will certainly miss him, though he's left a memorable wake with Orcabessa and this forum for us to remember him by always.

Dear Matteo,

I am saddened to hear of your loss and the loss to this wonderful group. Although I have met few from the S&S Swan Association, I feel a genuine warmth and friendship with the members. His passing is a true loss.

My condolences.

I had the pleasure of meeting Stephen,
He is born immediately a great sympathy, and a strong friendship.
I am very saddened.
