A great book for all classic boat fans. The classic 24 ft Nordic Folkboat has been around for 60 years. Many sleeker, lighter and faster classes have come and gone in that time, yet the Folkboat is still going strong. Designed in the early years of WW2, the boat is renowned for its minimalism, robustness and seaskindliness, which have hleped it resist radical modifications. As a result the class still enjoys remarkable popularity in the UK, USA, Scandinavia , Germany and Australia. Excellent selection of plans and photos covering the period.
Loibner guides us through all the layers of the Folkboat community, from those who sail competitively in the many Folkboat regattas worldwide, to the devoted following of recreational sailors who appreciate the sturdiness of the design when out cruising with family and friends, to what he refers to as the "Lunatic Fringe." Any reader who has spent a thrilling afternoon on the dancing prow of a small boat will appreciate the insights and journey of The Folkboat Story.
