On Vulcano, during docking of the Gianni M.

(ANSA) - Vulcano, September 28 - A hydrofoil, the "Gianni M.", hit the pier on the island of Vulcano on Friday, resulting in one sailor falling overboard but no injuries. The sailor, who was standing on the bow in preparation for docking and lost his balance when the boat hit, was able to climb onto the dock with the help of the linesmen on shore.
