The Soling is a 27' Olympic class race boat; the related Yngling (the Club's instructional boat) is a 21' racer. The Yngling Class is currently
used in the Women Olympics competition.
The club's Solings are used to participate in the regular races organized by the Milwaukee Yacht
See also our link section for some links to related webpages concerning
those boat types.
How safe are these boats?
All Club boats meet or exceed Coast Guard Safety Regulations, and carry US Coast Guard Auxiliary Safety Inspection Decals. Emergency and First
Aid kits are normally maintained on every Club boat.
The Ynglings and Solings have heavy fixed keels for stability, and are capable of sailing in much heavier weather than you will experience in any of
your lessons. The Club's boats were also chosen because of their excellent response characteristics that increase your control over the boat and
confidence during learning.
