The British version of the Folkboat – of carvel construction instead of the normal clinker – first appeared in 1950. The approval of the Scandinavian Yacht Racing Union was sought for this modification. Provided the boats conformed to the original specifications in all other respects and would carry the letters FB on their sails as opposed to the Scandinavian letter F, they had no objection
