Qingdao International Sailing Centre, Qingdao
(4.5/5 based on 35 reviews on the web)
The Qingdao International Sailing Centre is a sailing marina located on the former site of the Beihai Shipyard by Qingdao's Fushan Bay at Shandong Province in China. It was constructed for the 2008 Summer Olympics. It hosted the Olympic and Paralympic Sailing competitions. Wind conditions vary greatly from very light winds to +15knots. During the Olympic competitions, fog was also an occasional factor.The venue hosted “Good Luck Beijing - 2006" and in May 2008, the IFDS Qingdao International Regatta, where Olympic and Paralympic sailors got a headstart on familiarizing themselves with the venue and weather conditions.Access from the Qingdao Paralympic Village to the dock, work areas, etc. was provided by numerous golf carts making endless daytime rounds. Both ends of the work area had 2 cranes apiece, which could lift large keelboats like the Sonar from cradles and lower these into the water. At night, a laser light show from the main breakwater lighthouse would play from early evening to midnight. Facing the Yellow Sea, the main breakwater with spectator seating, windmills, flags and lighthouse was also the viewing area for the sailing competitions when not on the spectator ferry. Across the bay, the famous May 4 monument and Qingdao's landmark seaside building are easily visible.The Qingdao Olympic Sailing Center covers 45 hectares, comprising a 30 hectare competition area and 15 hectare area for development after the Games. The seven facilities, include the Qingdao Sub-Village, Athletes Center, Administrative Center, Venue Media Center, Logistics Center, Reception Center and Accreditation Center.

  • When you stayed at the Intercontinental, to make time, we walk around the yacht basin. Trails Olympic say ring Center, strolling and sea breeze very refreshing! I had for quite some time because the Café is surrounded by a great break and SC or ★

  • 白天和晚上都去了奥帆中心.老公喜欢海很喜欢钓鱼.第一次自驾去青岛老公没带鱼竿.没想到还真在灯塔附近看见了不少钓鱼的.那个手痒啊.为了座有游船.连续去了两个晚上.第一晚去的时候游船已经满员了.果断吧第二晚的游船票买了. 
  • 毗邻广场和东海路,2008年第29届奥运会和13届残奥会帆船比赛就是在这里举行的。全天开放,免费游玩,有私人开的项目需收费,公交车便利,有综合性购物商场[百丽广场],可于此处用餐、电影、购物,本地人也经常光顾。沿海边木栈道向西到达五四广场。

  • Nice windy stroll along the shore. Lots of souvenir shops selling a variety of local products and ornaments.
  • Headquarters for the 2008 Sailing Olympics, the International Marina and Water Sports Center currently hosts a wide variety of international events including the Clipper 'Round the World Yacht Race and Int. Marine Expo & Boat Show. Marina City, located on the grounds, offers shopping, dinning, and entertainment. Oh, and don't forget Passion Bar Street near the light house.
  • 如果不少地方的海,但是青岛奥帆这个点的海还是很值得去游览的。在官方买票点买的票,坐上12人的帆船,150一个人,感觉很值。如果买非官方的店买票,票价不太清楚,但是都是私人的坐30人左右的船。别人看着我们12人的船只有6个人,多羡慕。 在下午四点多到了奥帆,五点多出海已经准备日落了,海很美。
  • There is nothing worth. But it is hard to find in Qingdao, the Starbucks-like coffee shop for awhile, I got a Venetian Café break.
