Namens het Ystads zeilgezelschap, organisator van het Zweeds kampioenschap van 1986 en 2013, nodigt de Zweedse Folkboat Association alle Folkboat zeilers uit voor het Zweeds Kampioenschap Nordic Folkboat 2022 in Ystad van 11–14 August. Zie hieronder de uitnodiging in het Engels:
” The old merchant and shipping city of Ystad has in modern times become one of Sweden’s most popular tourist destinations with chalk-white beaches for swimming and an old town with well-preserved buildings. Yearly, cultural events, such as the Ystad Sweden Jazz Festival, are held with visitors from around the world. The city is also home for two handball teams in the men’s national top tier.
Ystads Segelsällskap was founded in 1932 and therefore celebrates its 90th anniversary in 2022. Meanwhile, the Nordic Folkboat turns 80 years. Both these anniversaries will be celebrated during YSS Jubileumsregatta 6–14 August. The regatta will start with ILCA Master sailing their Swedish Championship 6–7 August, followed by the Nordic Folkboat and H-boat Swedish Championships 11–14 August.
Besides fleet racing on one of the best sailing arenas in the country just outside Ystad harbour, there will be food and social activities on land.
Ystad Segelsällskap invites all Folkboat sailors to the regatta and hope that many of our international Folkboat friends will attend. Notice of Race will be published later.
Please save the dates 11–14 August 2022 for Folkboat racing in Ystad.”
