    Wow,
    Just found some more Video.
    What a nightmare.
    I'm reading it was kind of sudden.
    Not like a Cane coming in.

    Yep very sad indeed. The Ferretti Customline 124 in the middle was owned by Pier Silvio Berlusconi. (Berlusconi sons).
    There is also the Codecasa 34 mt ex Family Day half sunk in the center of the marine behind the Sanlorenzo 100.

    Rapallo was hit by ten meter waves which smashed the wall on top of the breakwater on Monday evening.
    After this I imagine that some of the boats start sling shooting left to right all become difficult to do and or save.
    Some twenty crew where saved by small tenders during the night.

    The good news of it all is that none lost life in this material disaster.

    It was a terrible storm with a lot of damage along the coast. Rapallo probably suffered most as the pier to Porto Carlo Riva was destroyed and about 200 yachts more or less lost...
