National Solo Class Profile

Solo sailing at Dell Quay Sailing Club.

The Solo is Dell Quay’s largest and liveliest fleet, with more than 20 boats in the club and an exciting calendar of racing, training and informal sailing throughout the year. Whether you’re at the front of the fleet or a little further back, you’ll find our racing is friendly yet competitive. Club racing takes place most weekends and we also host one of the best Solo open meetings on the circuit.

The Solo dinghy is one of the most popular single handers in the UK. By choosing the right mast and sail combination, a Solo can be sailed competitively by men and women weighing from 10.5 to 16 stone. They are quick, stable and exciting to sail. Most new boats are made from FRP but wooden and composite boats can be just as competitive. For more information about the Solo dinghy please visit the Solo Association website.

Boats hold their value and there are always good second-hand Solos for sale. If you’re thinking about buying a Solo to sail at Dell Quay, please get in touch so we can help find you the right boat. You’ll get some great advice and support if you need any help.

The Solo fleet at Dell Quay welcomes new members. If you’d like to know more about owning and sailing a Solo at Dell Quay, please get in touch with our class captain This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
