The Italian-Cypriot Chamber of Commerce was pleased to renew its annual support to the Round Aeolian Race, the sailing regatta in Capo d’Orlando, Sicily, from 29th September to 1st October.
The 3rd edition of the sailing competition, organized by the Yachting Club of Capo d’Orlando and hosted by Capo d’Orlando Marina, was an interesting occasion to introduce Cyprus and the opportunities offered by the Country in the Nautical sector and in general in a context of a desired increasing cooperation among the Mediterranean islands.
The 3rd ‘Round Aeolian Race’ hosts this year 47 crews from all over Italy. The Seven Sisters Islands of the Mar Tirreno represented the race course for the third edition of the “Round Aeolian Race”. The exciting competitive event for offshore sailing boats started from Capo d’Orlando, the tourist port in the Messina area, located right in front of the Aeolian Islands, which are recognized as UNESCO heritage and that marked the path of boats that will have to return by Saturday 1st October after having travelled 140 nautical miles without stopping. The event, organized by the local Yacht Club, is included in the federal calendars as a regatta of national interest.
The Italian-Cypriot Chamber of Commerce, committed to supporting the regatta, had an exhibition stand, as the event has been an important occasion to promote the maritime cluster and enhance new synergies between the Mediterranean Islands.
Furthermore, during this year’s sailing event was also held in the Marina of Capo d’Orlando the 6th edition of the Extra-Hotel Tourism Exchange from 30th September to 2nd October, which was a further occasion to increase the Chamber’s visibility.
The President of the Italian-Cypriot Chamber of Commerce, Giuseppe Marino, during an interview at the Marina of Capo d’Orlando, reiterated the Chamber’s interest in supporting sports initiatives, as they are a significant occasion for networking and relation, as it is for business relations and synergies, remarking the similarities among Cyprus and Sicily, that – together with Sardinia – are the biggest Mediterranean Islands.
