Michele Siniscalch (54) has been suspended after he apparently allowed Maria Rosaria Federico to steer his hydrofoil as it travelled across the Bay of Naples at high speed.

A friend of Ms Federico's filmed the episode and posted it on the internet.

The captain claims she was never in charge as the controls had been disabled. (©Daily Telegraph, London)
