Dear Folkboat sailors – Believe it or not. The Nordic Folkboat turns 75 in 2017. That 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 celebra-tion to remember. A fantastic opportunity to catch up with old friends, to talk about memo-ries 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 surroun-dings 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. For further information: Visit our website and Facebook. Let us have your preliminary appli-cation, upload of photos, stories and more on our Facebook site.

Hello from "Therese", the first and only Nordic Folkboat in South Africa, if not in whole Africa. :-) Unfortunately we won't be able to attend to the GoldCup, but wish all attendees loads of fun!

Happy birthday, old lady!

Today it is 75 years ago the first Nordic Folkboat was launched in Gothenburg, Sweden.

A combination of the four best suggestions out of 58 who participated in the competition arranged by Scandinavian Yachting Association in May 1941 to create a boat easy to sail and at low costs.

Kerteminde Sejlklub celebrates the birthday prior to the 2017 Gold Cup with a party to remember for all past and present Folkboat sailors 5-6. August.

There is no better day than today to sign up for the anniversary party. Remember there are limited numbers of seatings for the Sunday night party and registrations are based on first come first serve.

You can find detail on
Looking forward seing you all in August
