    From 21st and 22nd April, invited by Qingdao Sailing Sports Administration, Mr. Marcus Lip, the Executive Officer of World Sailing Matching Tour Organizing Committee paid a two-days visit to Qingdao, with the company of representatives from Qingdao Yachting Association, Qingdao Sailing Sports Administration,Qingdao TV and Radio Bureau, Qingdao Marine Sports School of General Administration of Sports, International Yachting Club of Qingdao City Investment Group.

    World Match Racing Tour together with American Cup and Volvo Ocean Race claim to be the top three professional sailing events of ISAF. The Race adopted the globally popular one-on-one close shore match race mode, which is featured with fierce competition, high-level, strong attraction and great effect. Most sailors are the excellence professional sailors from American Cup as well as Volvo Ocean Race and the top three medalists of recent Olympic Sailing Regattas. In 2010, the World Match Racing Tour will hold 9 World Championship events in such developed counties and regions in sports as Swiss, France, German, Denmark, Sweden, Korean and Bermuda. If Qingdao can be another stopover of this event, it will quicken our pace of building up the sailing city by enhancing our international competitiveness and influence. What’s more, this event will become another international sailing regatta landed on Qingdao after Olympic Sailing Regatta, Paralympics Sailing Regatta, Volvo Ocean Race and Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.

    World Match Racing Tour Organizing Committee pays great attention on Chinese Market. During the visit, the two sides consulted the concrete terms of Qingdao stopover. The organizing committee listened to the introduction of hosting the event from five aspects: primary need, reception service, security and rescue, cultural activities, advertisement and business promotion. After thorough investigation on the facilities in Qingdao Olympic Sailing Center, the committee made a very optimistic comment on Qingdao’s hosting conditions. They believe that given the World Matching Racing Tour can be held in Qingdao, Qingdao will be one of the most fascinating stopovers.

    Currently, Qingdao Sailing Sports Administration is working on detailing the event needs. The Organizing Committee will visit Qingdao again shortly to negotiate the hosting and sign relevant agreement.
