A Soling is a class of open
keelboat designed by Jan Linge of Norway in 1965. In 1968, it was chosen
from among many other boats to be the men's triple-handed boat for the
1972 Olympics. The Soling remained an Olympic boat until its final Olympic
appearance at the 2000 Olympics. Since 2008 the Soling has been one of
the Vintage Yachting Classes at the Vintage Yachting Games.
The Soling is a strong boat designed for any wind and sea conditions and
is fun to sail. Fitness, sailing and team skills are basic requirements
for good racing. The boats are made of fibreglass reinforced polyester
and are One-design boats coming from an authorized single plug and mould,
making competition as even as possible.
The gross-trim/fine-tune twin cam system matches the Soling's 2:1/4:1 purchase
The non overlapping jib is self-tacking. Two lines: sheet controls twist,
traveler car positions sail and controls slot.
During mark roundings, helmsman positions masthead using single-ended gross-trim;
makes precise adjustments using double-ended fine-tune controls.
