ACCESS TO VENUE:
Railway and port in Ancona (20 km) and airport is in Falconara (30 km).
Usually in June the temperature is 21°C/25°C and the prevailing wind direction is NW at 8-15 knots with maximum wind velocity of around 20 knots.
PROXIMITY OF SAILING TO CLUB FACILITIES:
The race course will be approximately 0.5 / 1 mile from port of Numana along the coast, so the people can see the regatta directly on the beach.
ON WATER SUPPORT DURING RACING:
Competitor’s safety is paramount at the CNN. We will have one safety/patrol boat for every five boats competing. This does not include RC, finish boats and mark set boats. All patrol boats will be equipped with first aide and towing capacity. Cell phones and VHF radios will be monitored and in communication with shore team.
The local emergency squads will be on call, if needed.
BOAT CHARTER AVAILABILITY AND SHIPPING REQUIREMENTS
The CNN does not have direct available boats for charter. There will be boats available from other Itailian Clubs for charter, not for sale). Charter cost will be fair and reasonable. The regatta website will have a list of boats available, contact information and prices well in advance.
SHIPPING FROM OVERSEAS and BOAT STORAGE
It is the organizing committee’ s opinion that is better shipping boats from overseas (terminal Ancona). Competitors planning on sailing the Worlds may leave and/or store their boats (and containers) on the CNN grounds anytime prior to the event free of charge. There will be a watchman but he, the CNN, its officers, members and directors will not be responsible for any boats stolen, lost or damaged while on the premise. *Attention competitors shipping from the Port of NJ/NY, USA - With the proposed schedule, if there are no shipping delays, the boats should be back in time to compete in the 2013 North American Championships in Cedar Point, CT.
YACHT CLUB FACILITIES
The CNN has a club house with main office and other rooms available for meetings (100 meters from the port).
In the port there are Club’s bar-restaurant, secretary's office, store-rooms, showers and changing facilities.
BOAT LAUNCHING and STORAGE:
The boats will be ramp-launched by club employees. Prior to the event, boats may be stored in the club’s dry sail area; once the event starts the boats will be wet sailed and either moored at the dock.
There are many hotels near the club. We have a housing committee that assists with finding accommodation for all participants. We have some on-site arrangements and several local hotel sites and camping areas.
Will be announced at a later date. There will be excursions, dinners and more; “spaghetti and wine” every day at the end of regatta. It is our intent to include the cost of all social activities in the registration fee, for all
competitors. Extra tickets will be available for purchase for the various events.
NON SAILOR ACTIVITIES:
The Regattas will be great events, but our area is a wonderful place to take a family vacation. With the clean beaches and water of Numana , the kids will be entertained all day. Plus there are many wonderful side trips just a short drive away. One of the main draws at Numana is the “Due Sorelle” beach, white sandy and clear water at the foot of Monte Conero. It is possible to get there by boat directly from the port. You can also visit the beautiful “Parco del Conero” and more historical city, at few kilometres from Numana. The hospitality office will assist who wish to see the various sights.
