- to ensure that the class retains its status by complying with the criteria adopted by the SYRU
- to coordinate and select venues for international regatta events, like Gold Cup or Sessan Cup
- to produce regular newsletters containing information about the class and the activities of the NFIA for distribution to all Folkboat sailors worldwide.
