Clapham adopt the Soling 1m

January 29, 2007 at 9:18 pm | Posted in News | Leave a comment

After months of discussions in the clubhouse and on the internet Clapham Model Yacht Club have adopted the Soling one meter as a third class to sail. Reasons behind this choice of yacht include, it’s one design status, the cost of the kit and the over-ruling factor that they can be sailed in just 11 inches of water, so we should be alright to sail over the summer months.

The Soling will add yet another method of sailing to members of the club, unlike the 6M they are very quick to react and being a one design they should all be evenly matched, so close racing should be available to all members old and new, all they need is a Soling. Initially 6 yachts have been ordered and should be with us in the later half of February
