The International 14 is a development racing dinghy that has a history as an International class going back over 71 years. During that time it has been at the fore-front of sailboat technology. Uffa Fox and Morgan Giles proved that light was fast in the late 20’s and 30’s. The class pioneered the single trapeze in 1938 then banned it for thirty two years in the perceived interests of their inland fleets. In 1984 twin trapezes were added to increase the sail carrying power and to ease the handling of the huge asymmetric spinnakers, long popular in Australia and New Zealand, introduced by the International 14 in 1988. Carbon hulls followed by carbon masts appeared in the late 80’s and 90’s. The 14s have events for Current Rules boats, Penultimate Rules boats and Classic boats.
