One of the longest-established and strongest fleets at Draycote, the Solo Fleet remains popular, active and highly competitive.
Fantastic club racing every Sunday throughout the season is supplemented by a very healthy mid-week turnout where sailors of all abilities spend many happy hours honing their skills through informal one-lap races and some quality bimbling over sandwich box lunches.
On a more serious note, Draycote’s Solo Fleet hosts full-scale national events, in conjunction with the National Solo Association, and the last couple of years have seen superb racing at the highest level at the National Solo Spring Championship.
To have stood the test of over 60 years’ time and still be one of the most popular single-handers around, the National Solo has to be nothing short of a design classic. Whether you’re new to dinghy sailing, or an established sailor thinking of giving this classic a try, come along and talk to this friendly, generous fleet on a Sunday or drop the Fleet Captain Dan Fisher a line. We have a fleet boat for you to try out – it’s easy to rig, and with advice always to hand, you can be on the water in minutes.
