In June 2019 Sailing Club Val, D-Marin Mandalina and the City of Sibenik will host the 2019 D-Marin ORC World Championship, which will attract around 150 sailboats and 1,000 sailors from all over the world to participate in this prestigious regatta. This will be the greatest sporting event ever held in Sibenik.

The official regatta program will start on May 31st with sailboat measurements, while the opening of regatta will take place on Sunday, June 2nd in the Old Town of Sibenik. Except in D-Marin Mandalina, the sailing boats will also be berthed on beautiful Sibenik waterfront promenade, so locals and their guests will be able to see them from up close. The regatta will last for six days and will be divided in one long and one short offshore navigational races with the remainder of the program being buoy racing on two course areas.

Final awards ceremonies will be held after racing on June 8th in the D-Marin Mandalina marina, as D-Marin is the general sponsor of the event.

"The D-Marin ORC World Championship will be the most significant nautical event of the season and we couldn't be more proud for hosting it in Croatia. This gives us an opportunity to simultaneously promote nautical sports in Croatia, as well as the alluring charm and rich cultural heritage of Sibenik", said Burak Baykan, CEO of D-Marin Group.

Along with Sailing Club Val, the marina D-Marin Mandalina has hosted many other high-level international regattas including the 52SuperSeries, the Croatian ORC D-Marin Cup, and various Farr 40, Melges 24 and Melges 32 Class events.

"We are very pleased to return to Croatia for our ORC World Championship event," said Bruno Finzi, Chairman of ORC. "Sibenik is a beautiful venue, and everyone who has come here has been extremely impressed. It was in 2011 here in Croatia where the number of ORC World Championship entries exceeded 100 for the first time, so we are looking for another strong turnout for 2019 and a great regatta for all."

"The fact that Sibenik will host 2019 ORC World Championship is a big recognition for our Sailing Club Val, the City of Sibenik and the whole of Croatia. In June 2019, Sibenik waters will be full of the world's best sailors, and millions of people around the world will get to see that. This is an excellent promotion for our town and it gives us an optimist view of the next tourist season," said Zeljko Buric, Mayor of Sibenik.

Entries are now open at the event website: orcworlds2019.com.
