Designed by Jan Linge, the Soling won a design competition to develop a new Olympic class to replace the Dragon. It was the Olympic 3 man keelboat from 1972 until 2000. The Soling’s lively performance makes it an excellent teaching boat. It’s responsive enough to provide instant feedback, but stable enough to avoid getting wet. Experienced sailors will enjoy the Soling’s outstanding upwind performance and extensive sail and rig controls. Fifteen of our Solings are rigged with self tacking jibs which are perfect for sailing single handed or with inexperienced crew.
