Class History

The 21-foot (6.35 m) Yngling made its Olympic debut as the women's keelboat at the 2004 Athens Olympics. Designed by Jan Linge in 1967 as the little sister to the Soling, this nimble three-person racer features a well-balanced rig and a responsive helm, and it reacts quickly to small trim and weight adjustments. With an optimal crew weight between 400 and 500 pounds (181kg-227 kg), the Yngling is a great boat for junior and averaged-sized sailors. Over 4,000 boats are sailing worldwide. yngling-sailplan.gif
