LONG NIGHT AHEAD AT 2013 ADRIA FERRIES ORCi WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

Ancona, Italy - Today's offshore race in the Adria Ferries ORCi World Championship will be a test of nerves and patience for all 110 entries in the event. The weather system that provided yesterday's breeze has disappeared, leaving behind it just enough northeast wind to get off a start, but as of 20:00 local time - 8 hours after the start - even the fastest boats in Class A have yet to complete the first section of the course that gets scored as a short offshore race.
Race managers knew the forecast was for light conditions, so they set a 130-mile course for the Class A long race and a 83-mile course for the Class B long race, with the intent of having the fleet complete each course in 32 hours.
So it will be a long night indeed, as the fleet works its way through the long windward-leeward courses laid along the coast in front of the scenic Monte Conero coast before they break north towards Senigallia and a final leg to the finish at Marina Dorica.
The lights of the Marina will no doubt be a welcome sight for those fast enough to finish before dawn.
