With the reputation of 'Garden on the Sea', Xiamen enjoys a great environment for sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing thanks to year-round great weather and coastal waters.
There are many sailing clubs in the city where windsurfing and sailing courses as well as equipment hire are available.

Founded in 2002 by Mr. Wei Jun, Xiamen Ironrock Sailing Club is one of the earliest private sailing clubs in China. The club is based in Xiamen’s scenic Wuyuan Bay Marina.
To date, Xiamen Ironrock Sailing Club has successfully hosted seven sessions of the China Club Challenge Match, which is the premier Chinese sailing event for Chinese sailors, two sessions of Xiamen-Hong Kong Sailing Rally, and six sessions of the Xiamen Kayak Marathon.
On 3rd November, 2011, a round-the-world sailing event was launched by Xiamen Ironrock Sailing Club, with 8 sailors embarking on a 23,000 nautical-mile voyage on the ‘Xiamen’ sailboat.
As the first Chinese sailboat traveling round the geographical shape of the Earth to attempt the feat, the "Xiamen" sailboat beat all odds to pass through the two world's most dangerous capes, Cape Horn and The Cape of Good Hope, and stop at the Philippines, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Australia, New Zealand and Chile during its 9-month round-the-world voyage.
