The International 14 is a 14 foot twin trapeze racing dinghy sailed in many countries around the world. It is a development class being controlled by a set of rules that allow for innovation and changes in hull and rig design as long as they fall within a set of specific limitations. The class has permitted its rules to be revised at various times in its history in order to keep the class at the forefront of dinghy racing development. Modern boats weigh little, have unlimited asymmetric spinnaker size, square top fully battened mainsail, an adjustable carbon rig and a hydrofoil rudder.
Ovington Boats has a long history of building International 14s along with Chris Turner who joined in 2005 from Specialized Marine. We are building boats to the latest Beiker 6 design. Complete B6 International 14s will be available from Pinnell & Bax.
