Hello and welcome to the home page of the National Solo Class Association's website.

The National Solo was designed by Jack Holt in 1956 and this year celebrates it's 60th anniversary.

The Technical Bit

The "National Solo" is a one design single handed dinghy with shrouds and forestay, pivoting centreboard and fully battened mainsail. The hull weight is no less than 70kg and it is constructed in wood, FRP, or a combination of the two. There are many variances in mast, sail, foil and control layout but these are carefully controlled by a Class specific measurement team and the R.Y.A.

The National Solo remains one of the most popular dinghies in the UK and big fleet racing equals close competitive racing through the fleet.
