In the 1950s, the Folkboat began to attract the attention of long-distance voyagers for its modest cost and seaworthiness.

Ann Gash from Australia, who made a single-handed circumnavigation in Ilimo between 1975 and 1977.
1962/1963 Adrian Hayter sailed single handed from New Zealand to the U.K.in ‘Valkyr’ by the Westward/Panama route.
Lt. Col. H.G. “Blondie” Hasler sailed a greatly modified folkboat Jester to second place in the first Observer Singlehanded Trans Atlantic Race in 1960.
Mike Richie sailed Jester in several Singlehanded Trans Atlantic Races until Jester was damaged and lost at sea. Richie survived and competed for many years in a replica of Jester.
Rozelle Raines sailing Martha McGilda in which she was the first British Woman to sail singlehanded to Russia in the 1960s.
