You can watch the action from Weymouth Beach during the games

A large

screen will be erected on Weymouth Beach during the 2012 Olympic games for people to watch the sailing

events, it it has been confirmed.

Nothe Gardens will also be used as an official Olympic

spectator ticketed venue for viewing the events between 27 July and 12

August 2012.

Councillors approved the proposal at a management committee meeting on Tuesday.

Funding for the Weymouth beach venue will come from the £1.5m

allocated to Weymouth and Portland Council to deliver additional

services and facilities for the 2012 games.

Up to 50,000 visitors are expected to watch the sailing

events at Weymouth and Portland during the Olympic and Paralympic Games

in 2012.
