Folkboats on San Francisco Bay

Celebrating 80 years of the Folkboat, and 65 years of racing on the Bay

The Nordic Folkboat has been sailed and raced on San Francisco Bay for 65 years making it one of the oldest continuously active one design fleets on the Bay. There are reasons for this success. First and foremost is the boat’s ability to not only handle, but to thrive in the heavy conditions the Bay dishes out all summer long. Combine her ability with classic lines and beauty and a down to earth group of sailors who enjoy both racing and cruising their Folkboats, you have 65 years of success on San Francisco Bay.



Richmond Yacht Club
September 3-4, 2022

Come celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Nordic Folkboat at Richmond Yacht Club, 3-4 September 2022. After more than 65 years of racing on the bay this will be a festival for Folkboat owners past, present and future. If you can bring your boat to raft up, we’ll be organizing fun races for single-handers, women helms, fleet veterans and novices. There will be competitions for the best looking boats (cruisers, wooden, fiberglass), and we’ll be swapping or trading spare equipment and sails.   Come meet old and new friends, enjoy a drink and some food. Sail in by noon on 3rd, leave your boat overnight if you can.
