The National Solo dinghy is a classic, one-design, single handed dinghy. Designed by Jack Holt in 1956, the Solo dinghy still remains popular today. The Solo is sailed in the United Kingdom, Holland and Australia.

While quite lively the Solo dinghy is not as physically demanding as a Laser or many of the other single crew designs. It is available in wood, composite or fibreglass and developments in rig technology mean that it can be sailed competitively by helms from nine and a half to sixteen stones.

2006 was the 50th anniversary of the design and the Class Association organised a series of events to celebrate.
