The National Solo fleet will close the 2022 season at Draycote Water October 29/30, that is this weekend coming and with a Super Saturday/Sunday of major titles up for grabs (EOS Sat, Gill Inlands Sat/Sun), we anticipate a bumper turnout of Solos from across the UK.

Specialist dinghy clothing company Gill are sponsoring the Inland Championship and Goat Marine are sponsoring the EOS so there is an added incentive to participate.

The major events form part of the North Sails Super Series and with a huge North Sails discount on offer for whoever is picked out of the hat at the prize-giving and a favourable forecast of 12-20 mph and 15 degrees, the scene is set for an awesome weekend.

Please enjoy issue 10 of SoloInteractive which includes a bit of history, clever product placement and some wicked footage of Solos.
