Nordic Folkboat Point Series

2024 Folkboat Points Series

This year we have split our Saturday and Wednesday series into a selection of events over the course of the season, to make each series shorter and more competitive. Racing runs from 27th April to 25th September, with most races scheduled to have a warning signal at 13:45, racing lasting on average around 2 hours. The entry fee is a nominal £25 for all entrants which is used at end of season for prizes for the various events. Our Race teams make great efforts to allow us to race on Saturdays and Wednesdays, so we hope to see you all on the water for these events.
Saturday Series now split as follows,
Saturday Cup - 27th April to 8th June. (6 races / 1 Discard)
Saturday Summer Points - 29th June to 3rd August. (4 Races / 0 Discards)
Saturday Autumn Mini Series - 7th September to 28th September. (3 Races / 0 Discards)
Wednesday White Sail Racing (non Spinnaker)
Early Points - May 1st to July 3rd (10 Races / Discards subject to no of races)
Late points - July 17th to September 25th. (8 Races / Discards subject to no of races)
Long Race East on 10th August is a standalone event with its own prize at end of year.
