Act 3 - Qingdao, China
In May the fleet returns to China’s ‘Olympic Sailing City’ Qingdao for the fourth consecutive year.
Considered China’s premier sailing destination and surrounded on three sides by the Yellow Sea, Qingdao boasts first class facilities at its International Sailing Centre ensuring the 2008 Beijing Olympic legacy is still very much alive in this sprawling metropolis.
Organised in association with the Qingdao Government and the Qingdao Yachting Association, the public Race Village will be located in Fushan Bay, home of the Olympic Village in 2008, giving spectators front row seats to all the action as the Extreme 40 fleet race inside the bay during the Stadium Racing days.
Qingdao is a city steeped in China's 20th century history. Now a tourism hotspot, the sprawling city has a population of 7.5 million and a vibrant economy. The Downtown skyline can rival that of any major city with an impressive array of cultures, cuisines and lively nightlife. Tsingtao, the most popular beer in China, operates their headquarters and main brewery in Qingdao. The brewery is open to visitors who can take a tour around the oldest working brewery in China, whilst guests can enjoy the beer tasting afterwards!
