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.
