The following four classes of boats are among the most popular on Folsom Lake. That is because they are ideally suited to Folsom Lake's light air conditions. They sail when other boats are stalled, and that makes sailing on Folsom Lake far more enjoyable.
Because these classes have the largest fleets at the lake, their sailors enjoy greater support from the larger number of other sailors who also sail these class boats, racing and cruising is more fun and their skippers experience a closer camaraderie with sailors who sail similar boats.
