BSC SAILING CAMP(BEIDAIHE CAMP)


Our Beidaihe camp is the preferred place for open water sailing, with a pleasant climate, suitable wind, and non-typhoon weathers.

Beidaihe Camp has two bases; Seatopia Sailing Club with a beachfront and Grape Island with a marina. The adjacent bases share the same stretch of water but have different characteristics, making the Beidaihe camp suitable for sailing at all levels.

With more than ten years of development, Beidaihe Seatopia Sailing Club has become a landmark of the Qinhuangdao area with its pristine beaches and clean waters, while Grape Island Marina officially obtained the prestigious RYA professional certification in 2018.
