Organizers for the 2013 Adria Ferries ORC International World Championship have published the list of entries that are set to take part in the event held in Ancona, Italy over 21-29 June 2013.

To maintain the highest possible standards for the event, organizers have put limits on the number of entries eligible to race, so there are now 100 confirmed entries and 22 yachts on the waiting list.

In accordance with Section 6 of the Notice of Race and subsequent amendments and announcements, this waiting list is composed of boats that have submitted their entries after the 30 April deadline, those that have not yet completed their registration formalities, and others whose resumes are being examined by the Technical Committee.

There are entries already from 15 countries on three continents, yet the Organizing Committee wishes to entice even more foreign entries and crews to further improve the large international presence at this event. Some incentive plans for this are currently under discussion, but overall the organizing authority is pleased with the strong turnout.

'I'm glad to see the participation at both a numerical and qualitative level beyond all expectations,' said Fabrizio Gagliardi, head of the Offshore Committee of the Italian Sailing Federation (FIV). 'All the boats are excellent and I am glad to see that in addition to new boats and more aggressive boats there is a large group that have been racing for many years. It is obvious that the system works and that all boats are really competitive at the same level.'

Francesco Siculiana, president of the Italian Offshore Sailing Union (UVAI) is also impressed, 'I think we have reached the maximum: 100 boats and over 20 waiting, three continents represented, perfect logistics...a month before the event these are the problems to solve while the quality of the teams is really high. At UVAI we are pleased to have the current World Champions who will attempt to defend their titles, and with an excellent Race Committee and Jury this will certainly help manage such a well-prepared fleet.'

'It is significant that still in these times of crisis there is an excellent turnout with participants from three continents,' said Bruno Finzi, Chairman of ORC. 'This is certainly the result of the excellent preparatory work done by the organizers who have taken action to attract more international participation. This success emphasizes the technical and sporting validity of the whole event.' ORC Worlds website
