The yachting competition of the
Barcelona'92 Olympic Games was held in
the waters off the Olympic Harbour. The
new harbour was planned to be the base
for the holding of the Olympic regattas
and to be a determining factor in the
opening up of the city to the sea. To
achieve this, it was necessary to modify
the Special Town Plan for the Parc de
Mar Area and to design a harbour which,
on the one hand, would satisfy the
requirements of the International Yacht
Racing Union (IYRU) and COOB'92,
and on the other would be suitable for use
as a marina after the Games. The new
Olympic Harbour was first put to the test
on 26 July to 9 August 1991, when the II
Ciutat de Barcelona international
yachting week was held as part of
Competitions'91.
