Rushcutters Bay will be the headquarters of Olympic sailing and will accommodate a large contingent of Olympic sailors and their boats.
Surrounded by parkland, the picturesque bay is only minutes from the city centre on the southern shore of Sydney Harbour. Inshore sailors will use the parks for rigging and storing their dinghies.
The Olympic Sailing Shore Base has been built for logistic support and competition management. It features a temporary marina, which can accommodate up to 250 boats, and four pontoons that act as dinghy launching ramps.
There will be no public access to the shore base facilities during the Games.
