Folkboat 75 year anniversary

Dear Folkboat sailors –

Believe it or not, the Nordic Folkboat turns 75 in 2017 and it calls for a celebration!

Since it was designed in 1942 by Scandinavian boat designers the Nordic Folkboat has conquered the hearts and minds of thosands of sailors around the globe – and for good reasons.

Kerteminde Sejlklub is proud to invite all Folkboat sailors—past and present—to a celebration to remember. A fantastic opportunity to catch up with old friends, to talk about memories and stories from your Folkboat career.

The celebration will be just prior to the start of the Gold Cup 2016 also hosted by Kerteminde Sejlklub so we have made a combined program showing the preliminary activities.

Come to Kerteminde a well preserved mar-ket town dating back to the 13th century and – the birth place of more than 1,100 folkboats,  some of the best and most challenging racing conditions in Northern Europe, fantastic surroundings with a great marina named “Marina of the Year” 2015, charming villages nearby and much more!

The frame is set; there is a great team behind the project who will do their absolute best to make the event memorable. So please save the dates.

Let us have your preliminary application, upload of photos, stories and more on our Facebook site.

Best regards
