ISAF Sailing World Cup fourth venue announced

'Qingdao Set To Host ISAF Sailing World Cup'   
ISAF Sailing World Cup fourth venue has been announced as Qingdao in China. With two confirmed regattas from 12-19 October 2013 and 11-18 October 2014, the announcement marks a huge step forward for the ISAF Sailing World Cup.

The sailors in the six confirmed events, Men’s and Women’s RS:X, Laser, Laser Radial and Men’s and Women’s 470, will also benefit from today’s announcement with 300 boats available to charter during the regatta. For the first time in the history of the ISAF Sailing World Cup, there will be a great incentive of $180,000 USD in prize money, which will be divided amongst the medallists of each event.

Set to be held at the Qingdao Olympic Sailing Center, the Chinese venue joins Melbourne, Australia, Palma, Spain and Hyeres, France in the list of named venues.

Following a bid process, an ISAF appointed evaluation panel advised the Executive Committee on the bids received on factors including sailing conditions, venue infrastructure and facilities, organisation and financial resources.

ISAF Secretary General Jerome Pels said, 'Sailing is developing fast in Asia, and Qingdao, China was a clear choice as an Asian venue for the ISAF Sailing World Cup. With Qingdao added to regattas in Australia, France and Spain the ISAF Sailing World Cup from 2013 onwards will be a truly global affair. ISAF welcomes the great effort of the Chinese Yachting Association and Qingdao Yachting Association towards facilitating a regatta that will enhance the participation of elite sailors.

The prize money on offer and chartered equipment availability will go a long way in growing the regatta which shows China’s outstanding commitment to the ISAF Sailing World Cup.'

The Mayor of Qingdao Municipal Government, Mr Zhang Xinqi said, 'With our experience of hosting international sailing events such as Olympic Sailing Competition, the Volvo Ocean Race, Clipper Round the World Yacht Race and the Extreme Sailing Series we welcome the ISAF Sailing World Cup as part of the legacy left behind from the 2008 Olympic Sailing Competition. Meanwhile, it is also an important step taken by Qingdao to carry on the Olympic Spirit whilst building the 'Sailing Capital' of China.

'Our aim is to have a record number of developing sailing nations competing in the ISAF Sailing World Cup and with a sailing boom across Asia it marks a new era for Asia and Olympic class sailing.'

The ISAF Sailing World Cup was launched in December 2008 and brings together the world's leading Olympic sailors. Today's news marks another step in the ISAF Sailing World Cup's development on its way to becoming a truly world circuit of events.
