GP14

The GP14 is a popular sailing dinghy, with over 14,000 built. It is 14’ (4.26m) long and is a double handed hiking dinghy with a spinnaker and centreboard. It has been a WLYC class fleet since the early 60s and is one of the main classes that is sailed in the  24 Hour Race. The club fleet has competitive racing with a wide range of abilities that reflect the board appeal of the class.

The class is active in the UK, Ireland, Australia, South Africa, Sri Lanka and parts of north-eastern USA, and the GP 14 can be used for both racing and cruising. The boat is relatively heavy, but stable, and the weight and the freeboard together with her lines combine to make her an excellent sea boat. She is also an ideal boat to learn to sail in.

The class is raced competitively, and offers excellent close racing; she is a very forgiving and easy boat to sail, but a very challenging and demanding and immensely rewarding boat to sail really well.
