Yinhai (Silver Sea) International Yacht Club

As well as appreciating the enchanting seashore scenery, tourists experience the charm of yacht sports and the Olympics.
The Star of Yinhai, the international exhibition center of the Yinhai Group, is the world's largest steel structure and is built in the shape of starfish. It has a height of eight meters (26.2 feet) and each horn measures 20 meters (65.6 feet), looking like a gigantic starfish mounting the seashore. The exhibition center contains 416 standard exhibition booths and a large convention hall which can accommodate over 100 people. The chambers built within the horns provide facilities for business and dining. After dark, the light inside the steel structure reaches into the sky and the neon lights on the framework form five beautiful roses, creating a spectacular show.

Longwan Rainbow, to the east of Yinhai International Yacht Club, is designed to resemble a rainbow. It is the first bridge ever constructed to be opened and closed by machinery and is now comparable to the Millennium Bridge in Britain. Made of steel tubes, the imposing bridge is 60 meters (197 feet) long and 2 meters (6.56 feet) wide, connecting the marina with the dams. When oversize watercraft enters or leaves the port, the bridge opens from middle, resembling two grand sails.
The sightseeing beacon was built to commemorate success in China's bid for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. It has a height of 20.08 meters (65.88 feet) and a bottom diameter of 8.11 meters (26.6 feet), indicating the date of the sailing race which happened on August 11, 2008. On the top of the beacon is the symbol of the 29th Olympic Sailing Race. The automatic rotary is clearly visible in land, in the sea and in the air both day and night. The top platform can be reached along the staircases inside the beacon and commands a superb view of the bay.
