The Qingdao Olympic Sailing Centre is located on Fushan Bay, just a short bus ride or 20-minute walk from the centre of Qingdao city. The venue was formerly the Beihai Shipyard, which has been relocated to Haixi Bay in the Huangdao District of Qingdao at the cost of over US $230 million. Together with the construction work, this brought the total cost of the project to US $436 million, although all of this investment is set to be recouped through plans to utilize the venue after the Games.

Qingdao, also known as Tsingtao, lies along China's east coast at the south of the Shandong Peninsula, approximately 800 km southeast of Beijing. Approximately 2½ million people live in the Qingdao urban area, where the Qingdao Olympic Sailing Centre is located.
Over $430 million has been invested to prepare Qingdao for the 11 sailing events at the 2008 Olympic Games and the sailing committee has worked hard to ensure that the city, and the sport, will receive a long-term return.
