Weihai Weihai Ivy Sailing Club


Since the establishment of Weihai Ivy Sailing Club (WHIVY) in 2011, it has been dedicated to the popularization and promotion of family sailing culture, sailing spirit and youth sailing education.

The club is located in the Banyue Bay beach area in the middle of the 1,000-mile coastline of Weihai, Shandong Province. The training site is backed by the oil painting town, adjacent to the Haiyuan Park and the triathlon training base, with beautiful environment, ecological harmony and convenient transportation.

At present, the club has more than 200 sets of various water sports equipment for the public to provide sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, paddle boarding and other water sports training, rental, events, expansion activities and other services. It is a sports and leisure life experience platform featuring family sailing and leisure, as well as other sports and upstream and downstream industrial development.


In 2023, the Weihai Sailing Center (WHSC) youth sailing camp was added. The camp is located on Liu Gong Island, a 5A-level national scenic area in Weihai, and is positioned around the natural resources of the island, the historical resources of the Sailor's Academy, and the science education resources of marine conservation to develop youth camp education activities with sailing and sailing as the main line.


In the summer of 2005, Mr. Xuejun Wu (Fred), the founder of Ivy League Foreign Language School in Weihai, started to explore and think about the career of vocational education after 7 years of working in vocational education. He chose to learn sailing with his New Zealand friend, Mr. Lindon, to challenge himself and think about the direction of his education career. In the time that followed, family sailing activities were a regular occurrence at the international sea baths in Weihai, and the sight of keelboats and catamarans riding the waves on the sea baths became a bright local sight in Weihai.

In 2007, during the preparation for China to host the Olympic Games, Qingdao Olympic Sailing Center, Mr. Fred and his friend Mr. Lindon, with the help of the International Sailing Federation, CYBP and the Royal Belgian Yacht Club, started a systematic international sailing training and environmental protection campaign for hundreds of local children aged 8 to 12 in Qingdao and Weihai, Shandong Province. In 2011, we started to promote sailing in schools. To this day, the WHISC continues this tradition of public service.

In 2011, with the support of Weihai sports and education departments, the sailing base was relocated to Banyue Bay Beach in Weihai. With the help and guidance of the government of Weihai city and Huancui district, bureau of sports, departments of education and cultural tourism, the club has grown into a sailing club with more than 4,000 youth sailing training members after more than 10 years of efforts.
