The 50-year-old pilot of the port of the Veneto Estuary, an effective pilot in the lagoon since 2002, was unanimously elected by the new Fedepiloti Board of Directors formed yesterday, 23 June 2020, during the 73rd Fedepiloti National Assembly. Luigi Mennella, originally from Casamicciola Terme (NA), is the first President in the history of Fedepiloti coming from the guild of Venice and in the last two years has held the role of Vice President alongside the outgoing President com.te Francesco Bandiera, Pilot of the Port of the guild of Olbia.

The role of Vice President that for the next two years will be held by com.te Massimiliano Fabricatore Irace, chief pilot of the Guild of Pilots of Salerno, also elected by the new Board of Directors and for the first time in his career will hold a managerial role within the Federation. To complete the command framework there will still be com.te Giacomo Scarpati who continues his mandate as Director of Fedepiloti.

The new President is expected immediately by important challenges to relaunch a category hard hit during the emergency by Covid-19. These are his first official words: "I thank the Drivers' category and the Board of Directors for the trust placed in me by honoring me with this prestigious position. I hope to fulfill my mandate in the best possible way".

Video Wind Impact on Ships Turning Motion

This video complements the earlier demonstration of wind effect on straight track and shows now wind effect on turning circles. It can be seen that during a turn under strong wind the ship reduces turning when it comes close to equilibrium on straight track - if the Wind-to-ship speed ratio is big enough then the ship even goes straight instead of turning. This is shown for three samples for Head, Stern wind and Beam wind. The turning can be increased if the ratio of Wind speed-to-ship...
