The 50th Anniversary of Soling will be celebrated before the 2015 World Championship. Our goal is to capture the history of Soling in a beautiful book dedicated to this wonderful yacht famous for its Olympic prestige and camaraderie.
Soling, a bold innovation back in 1965 has become a classic in the world of sailing. This deserves a special book for all that love, sail, enjoy or cherish the Soling.
About the Soling Book
This book will be a journey of 50 years Soling sailing history. Passion of true sports people, the need for cooperation, technological achievements and the elements are factors behind the enormous popularity of this special class. This book gives you insight in all the ingredients of Soling.
The 200 page book will be made of recycled paper and will have a cover made of used Genua sails.
In the last 50 years it has proven to be a true surviving sports boat. With a changing world, the Soling has been itself and thus unique from the beginning. Based on a solid past, the anniversary will also celebrate the bright future.
With this crowdfunding we would like to provide the Soling World a unique opportunity to support the anniversary with receiving something in return. If we reach the funding goal of 40.000 euro a truly unique book will be created, the Gala will be Michelinstar worthy, the Legends will be present and most important: the Anniversary will be memorable and perfect.
Dining in Tuscany
Castiglione Della Pescaia, Tuscany, Italy. Over the last decades this little Italian town and the Italian Soling Sailors have managed to make us feel at home. The Gala location is can only be described as perfect.
Risks and challenges
The book has to be Soling worthy so only consider it as good enough when it is truly unique and high standing. Therefore we will need to find the best people, writers, graphical designers and printer specialists who will need to work in an optimised workflow to achieve a book meeting Soling standards. It would involve the same cooperation as actually sailing a Soling.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
