SFBFA Hall of Fame

If you are an old hand, take a trip down memory lane. If you are new to this thing, memorize the skippers, boat names and sail numbers of the local Folkboat greats of the past. You may be quizzed at the bar after the race.

Thanks to Chris Herrmann for suggesting to post the long list of winners and nagging until it got done. Special thanks to Bill Madison for putting it together.

Enjoy!
