About United States Soling Association

Whether you are an Olympic aspirant or a club sailor, you will find yourself welcome wherever you sail. The Class prides itself on the camaraderie between its “pros” and amateurs. The Soling One-Design Class whose rules are vigilantly guarded to retain that one-designness. But a reading of the Class Rules (which you should do) demonstrates that there is much room for individualism so that you can develop your rig (and your speed) to your heart’s content. The Soling is a challenging boat both in the depth of its competition and in its critical responses to minimal changes in trim. We trust you will be stimulated by these challenges, but remember that all your fellow sailors (including the top ones) will be happy to help if you need it.
