The Marina Dorica Association and the Offshore Racing Congress (ORC) are pleased to announce that the 2013 ORCi World Championship will be held at Marina Dorica in Ancona, Italy over 21-29 June 2013.

This annual event is the sole Offshore World Championship sanctioned by the International Sailing Federation (ISAF), and the four organizing clubs - SEF Stamura, Ancona Yacht Club, Lega Navale Italiana di Ancona, and Assonautica Ancona - are affiliates of the Italian Sailing Federation (FIV).

The 2013 ORCi Worlds will benefit from the support of the municipality of Ancona and the regional authorities of Marche who granted their support for the initiative. Sailing is an old tradition of this area and the event will represent a special opportunity to internationally promote Marche and its natural and architectural beauties. 2013 is also an important year for Ancona, as the city will be celebrating its 2400th anniversary of its founding, so there will be many celebrations and events on the calendar to attract the interest of visitors to the area...
