|Soling Fleet at MYC|
Fleet Captain: Paul McGuan
The Soling Fleet is a group of dedicated racing sailors committed to fostering the tradition of one-design competition at MYC – and are determined to have fun while doing it! If you are serious about racing there is no better way to hone your skills than in a Soling…
The Soling is a popular one design club racer with a class organization that provides opportunities for national and international competition. We are a training ground for young (and not so young) sailors who aspire to be great. The class provides world-class competition within which the novice is able learn from the experienced.
The Soling Class is remarkable for its ability to maintain an enjoyable mixture of club and Olympic sailors throughout its racing programs. The majority of competitors at a typical World Championship enjoy going up against and frequently beating the best. By the same token most of the Olympic competitors are happy to contribute their skills and their knowledge to the enhancement of the local racing at their home clubs.
The Soling is a true three-person boat; all three crew are essential to success and inexperienced crews are quickly trained. Many of its skippers are women as are many of its crews. In fact, the Soling has been the only gender-mixed class during our Olympic tenure.
Solings are raced in 41 countries on four continents. Club racing takes place at numerous venues in Canada, Australia, Japan, South Africa, Argentina, Brazil, almost every country in Europe. You can be a part of it right here in Milwaukee as well as many other great sailing venues across the United States including Annapolis, San Diego, Chicago and Seattle.
