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.
