Ingemar, the Italian leader in design and production of floating marine structures and layout designs for marinas, is the official sponsor of the most important off-shore event of the international sailing calendar: ORC Worlds 2017, taking place in Porto San Rocco (Trieste) from 30 June to 8 July.
The relationship between Ingemar and Porto San Rocco goes back to the very beginning of what has become one of the major marinas in Italy on the Adriatic. It started in the late 1990s, during the engineering and construction phase of this new marina on the coast of Muggia, near the border with Slovenia.
Roberto Sponza, director of Porto San Rocco and President of the Yacht Club that carries the same name and organizer of the upcoming event, explains the reasons behind the partnership and the active role Ingemar will play at ORC Worlds Trieste 2017:
"Ingemar, more than a sponsor, is a fundamental presence at ORC Worlds 2017 that began producing remarkable results long before the events even begin.
Organizing a World Championship with nearly 130 top-level boats making their way into our waters means guaranteeing the highest level of safety for our guests no matter what the environmental conditions, both before and after the competition. This requires excellent safety standards and solutions for moorings. It is this element that distinguishes our marina and, thanks to Ingemar’s marine solutions for Porto San Rocco, it was one of the decisive elements enabling us to organize and host ORC Worlds 2017, bringing this international event to Italy and to the Upper Adriatic for the first time ever.
Ingemar has been with us since the design stage of the marina. They were an obvious choice for us, given the range of innovative and avant-garde technical solutions the Italian company was able to offer, especially ad hoc solutions for any kind of weather condition, including difficult winds. They continue to outperform every possible alternative on the market and in other marinas.
The Bora wind in the Gulf of Trieste, and Muggia in particular, can put any mooring or floating structure to the test. With gusts sometimes exceeding 90 knots as they have in recent winters, we have never had any problems with guests in our Marina or with the Ingemar structures.
Because of the varying depths in our marina (4-17m) which allow us to accommodate any yacht, Ingemar provided a customized solution for our specific requirements, again providing us with absolute quality in terms of construction, safety and comfort.
The technical contribution was just as significant when we decided to add an openable bridge to the mouth of the historic dockyard to take advantage of the berths inside (and organize a J22 World Championship), or when Ingemar provided four beautiful launch slides to host the Primavela Cup last year in Trieste and Muggia.
We are therefore extremely pleased to count Ingemar, a company you can only find in the world’s best marinas, among the names of those who have contributed and continue to play an important role in what we do and, at the same time, allow us to host races at the highest international level.

In an exciting finale to a week of mostly light air sailing, overall class winners were not decided until the last race in all classes today at the ORC Worlds Trieste 2017. And the new World Champions in each class were surprises as well, none having been at the top of the leaderboard all week during the 6-day format of inshore and offshore racing.
