All enthusiasts of the Nordic Folkboat are invited to this summer’s arrangements in Simrishamn. The event – Sail Österlen – will proceed for ten days in July and include Swedish Championship Nordic Folkboat 2018 as well as Nordic Folkboat Gold Cup 2018. The regattas are both open for international participation.
Simrishamn is an old merchant town situated in the green and beautiful Österlen in the most southern part of Sweden, close to Bornholm and only an hour away from Öresundsbron/Malmö. In the summertime the town and region attract many tourists.
Simrishamns Segelsällskap look forward to fair races worth remembering in one of the best sailing areas of Sweden. We hope to meet a great number of folkboat sailors, relatives and others from Sweden, Denmark, Germany, United Kingdom, Finland, Estonia and the U.S.A. in Simrishamn in July.
The entry fees include launching, hauling out and berthing in Simrishamn Marina. Participating crews will for free be supplied breakfast, with opportunity to make lunch packet, as well as tickets to Opening Ceremony Buffet and Regatta Dinner. Extra tickets can be booked.
After the races, After Sail will be arranged ashore with different activities as well as opportunity to be served “meal of the day” for an additional charge. In the evenings the club bar will be open and some evenings music entertainments will be arranged. The arrangements will give several pleasant opportunities to meet folkboaters from other countries.
We welcome your entry and look forward to meet you in Simrishamn.
