Samenvatting

A clinker design that sails equally fast and well whether it is made from wood or fiberglass, the Nordic Folkboat has been around for 60 years. Many lighter, sleeker and faster boat classes have come and gone during those decades, yet, the Folkboat is still going strong. The class enjoys a remarkable popularity in some of the world's most beautiful and challenging sailing areas, including Scandinavia, Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia. Designed during the early years of World War II, the 25-foot Folkboat is not a mere survivor of difficult times. Its minimalism, robustness and seakindliness prevailed during the following years of prosperity and have helped it resist radical modifications. Costs have been kept in check and boats of all ages are still sailed and participate successfully in many regattas.

Recensie(s)

Now in paperback, this is a modern classic detailing the history of the Nordic Folkboat. Designed during the early years of World War II, the 25-foot Folkboat has gone from cult to classic, maintaining a devoted following. Boats of all ages are still being sailed today. The Folkboat has also inspired spin-offs, such as the Contessa 26 which was sailed around the world by Tania Aebi who wrote the Foreword for this latest edition. * Latitudes & Attitudes * Loibner writes that the Spartan 25-foot Folkboat epitomizes the enduring 'less is more' philosophy, which is, perhaps, an important metaphor for these times. * Sailing * Designed by committee in Scandinavia in the 1940s, the Nordic Folkboat was intended to bring yacht racing to the masses; Loibner explores the vitalility and popularity of the design. * Wooden Boat * Loibner takes us across the world in easy strides--from the Scandinavian base to the San Francisco enclave; from racing to cruising and with a charming chapter he calls the Lunatic Fringe. * Classic Boat *
