Yngling Deck Layout

Belowdeck Fine-Tune Jib Controls

This 4:1 double-ended system allows crew to simultaneously control the movement of both traveler cars from the weather rail. Cars stay in the same position, helping to maintain jib trim from tack-to-tack. The belowdeck feature keeps decks clean.

 

 

Jib Halyard Adjuster

The gross-trim controls let crew hoist the jib quickly. Small adjustments to jib halyard tension with the fine-tune controls help to optimize sail shape.

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.
