Sea and land, connected by the World Championship
It has been said that sea and Ancona should rhyme. Always, and particulary on this occasion offered by Adria Ferries ORCi World Championship. It is true, obviously, that regattas take place on the sea, however, it is also true that Ancona is being a real protagonist during these nine days. It is pleasant to notice how this message has extended, beyond those preconception that considered sailing as a sport for the few. The most sparkling colour of this world championship lies right on the mutual involment between the city and the harbour, which is particulary strong on these days, as it should always be.
An example? The shop windows in the center of Ancona, displaying clear references to sailing and to this world competition.
Every business is ready to welcome shipowners, sailboaters, and their families, while offering them the opportunity to bring back home a small piece of Ancona, in a way.
On the other hand, being present at Marina Dorica is evidently a way for the citizens to experience directly this championship, each one feeling as a sort of protagonist.
