Pink Ribbon

De internationale Soling klasse bestaat sinds 1965 en is een voormalig Olympische 3-persoons zeilboot. Ondanks dat de Soling Klasse niet meer Olympisch is, wordt er nog actief gezeild binnen deze klasse. WK's en continentale kampioenschappen, in Europa, Australiƫ, Noord Amerika en Zuid Amerika, worden zeer goed bezocht en zeker het aantal actieve landen (de Soling is actief als wedstrijdboot in 22 landen!) is hoog.

Shortening the mast!?

Through the perfect organisation of the Dutch, the registration and measurement went smoothly. The hospitality of KNZ&RV Muiden was great end friendly. 

On Saturday the weather was rainy, but on Sunday the whole day was shiny and a lot of Soling went in to the water. There was very little wind expected in the afternoon of 17th of September. But the wind went on a nice way in, and a lot of Soling sailor were practising on the IJsselmeer, nearby the island of Pampus.

At 16.30 hours all the Solings, who went out sailing, were back to visit the opening ceremony. After several talks, the flags of the visiting countries were hoisted and the World Championship Soling 2017 was opened. We wishes all the Soling sailors a nice regatta and a sportive event.
