Martin Atzwanger has sent us the sad news that our Finn friend Heini Unterhauser has passed away at the age of 77 years.
Heini started his Finn career on Lake Caldaro in the 1960s and won the Finn World Masters in 1983 in Port Camargue and again in 1986 in Lago di Bracciano.
Due to his victory in Port Camargue and his commitment, the Finn World Masters was held with great success on the small Lake Caldaro in 1984. That was the first time the event attracted more than 100 Finn Masters.
Martin writes, "He was known as a very funny person and Finn sailing was his life. The entire Finn fleet of Lake Caldaro with its 30 Finn dinghies mourns his death. He leaves behind a wife and a daughter."
The Finn Masters sends its deepest sympathies to Heini's family and friends.
