The Solo is a single-handed light double chined hull with a stayed rig supporting a large fully-battened mainsail. Currently one of the most popular single handed racing dinghies in the UK, there are fleets across the UK and Holland and now Portugal and France.
The Class regularly gets 50-60 boats attending the National Super Series. The Solo became a RYA National Class in 1963.
