2006 Qingdao International Regatta

I'm heading to Flushing Meadow for courtside seats at the U.S. Open tonight...hopefully have the chance to see Agassi play. After 20 years he's "retiring" and this will be his last Open.

I don't think sailing has a U.S. Open event like golf and tennis do, per se. But check out this link to the first of two Olympic Test events, the Good Luck Beijing - 2006 Qingdao International Regatta. The regatta gives sailors the opportunity to test the conditions, venue and competition for the 2008 Olympic Games. The event is held from August 18-31, 2006, at the Qingdao International Marina in Qingdao, a coastal city located 430 miles east of Beijing, China.

The site is sponsored by U.S. Sailing, the national governing body of the sport here in the United States. Congrats to the US Sailing team - they wrapped with two gold medals and one bronze medal. Onward to victory in 2008!
