Qingdao Olympic Regatta 2008. A flotilla of weed-collecting boats working close inshore before racing starts on 12th August.

The Laser and Laser Radial fleets are scheduled to race on Course A, the RS: X Men and Womens classes on Course B, 470 Men and Womens on Course D.
There has already been a postponement signal and the sailors are being held ashore for at least an hour.
