Soling - In Brief

MadforSailing takes a quick look at the Soling, the Olympic match race keelboat
The Soling is used in the Olympics and in match racing competitions. A powerful keelboat raced at a very high level on the international circuit. Due to the Olympic status the international racing is very physical and this has restricted its growth in the UK. Older boats are available at very reasonable cost and can provide good sailing at less exalted levels - though you'll struggle to find much class racing!
