A day in the life of... A PORT DIRECTOR


ANNA CANNAVACCIUOLO PORT DIRECTOR, MARINA D’ARECHI


aving recently qualified as Italy’s first Port Director, by RINA Services one of the oldest naval registers in the world, Anna presides over a one thousand berth marina, now seen as a world class, state of the art marina that can accommodate craft from 10 to 100 metres.


H


Now fully open and seen as a year round holiday destination, it is located


on the breathtaking


UNESCO world heritage site, the Amalfi coast line, with close proximity to Capri, Ischia, Positano, Ravello, Paestum and Pompeii.


A venue for an annual boat show, a racing destination and a tourist hot spot in itself, it’s not surprising, then, that Anna and her team have their work cut out for them where every day is different!


DAY BEGINS My day starts at about 6am when I wake up and take in the lovely early morning air from the balcony. The sun is still low in the sky but already it’s feeling warm. I love where we live, as we are only ten minutes drive away from work. But, it doesn’t take long to wake up with the help of a glass of water and five minutes later, my mind starts buzzing on the tasks ahead for the day.


BREAKFAST TIME My husband, Agostino, already has the coffee on and we sit down together with some orange juice, Expresso and a bowl of locally grown fruit. Salerno and the Campania region is so well known for its fruit produce and I can never resist starting the day without a good selection from the local market. This is probably the last time I will see Agostino until much later tonight as he himself is busy with our commercial port.


START WORK I always try to get in before the day staff arrive, and I get the chance for any overnight news from the night shift. It’s very peaceful and calm here but some of the stories can be quite amusing! Owners forgetting where their boat is in the marina, is one of the most common! I then prepare for my meetings……we have just finished the Salerno boat show which is now an annual event and there is much to do.


104 | SUMMER 2017 | ONBOARD


TYPICAL MORNING Two superyachts are arriving mid morning, both on charter and require bunkering before they visit the beautiful Amalfi coast line, the islands of Capri and Ischia. One heads south to Sicily for the rest of the week and the other, a beautiful Perini Navi, is heading west to Sardinia. We are picking up VIP guests for both, using our limo service from Salerno and they need to rendezvous with both yachts immediately upon arrival.


Meanwhile a flotilla of smaller boats literally coming from anywhere and everywhere want berthing for the summer season. Agostino calls and everything is OK. The less he knows the better! It’s hectic at this time of the year and we make sure that everyone feels the warmth of Marina d’Arechi.
