Welcome to the International 14 USA Fleet. A place to discuss i-14 sailing matters and talk about beer.
2019 US International 14 Regatta Schedule
Hello all! Here is the Schedule for 2019 - there are a number of dates that need to be confirmed and we'll be adding some Midwest events as they get scheduled. The larger schedule has all of the regional events listed as well (see attachments) Look for a revised calendar in about a month but below is the main schedule below and attached. For Main Events - we have 13 larger events spread throughout the year with Nationals in San Diego in September - should be epic Champagne conditions! Additionally, we have North Americans in Kingston, Ontario the month before - look for some chatter on that to see who may be interested. Check the schedule and we hope to see everyone in the next few months at Midwinters in Long Beach and West Coast Champs in Coronado in the next few months!
Twelve I-14 competitors, nearly all hailing from less breezy regions than the San Francisco Cityfront, faced three days of high winds against strong ebb tides, making just finishing a round a victory in the 2018 U.S. I-14 Nationals, held over Memorial Day Weekend, May 26-28, at St. Francis Yacht Club.

International 14 Pacific Rim Championships 2018
The 2018 Pasha Hawaii International Fourteen Pacific Rim Championship Regatta was hosted at Kaneohe Yacht Club from April 7th to the 10th. The event had three sponsors, Pasha Hawaii, a local environmentally aware ocean transportation company; Hawaiian Fine Furniture who provided beautiful hand carved Koa wood half-models for trophies; and the Global Sports Alliance (gsa.org) who sponsored the EcoFlag program that promotes clean air and clean water through sporting events worldwide. This year’s event included sailors from the US, Australia, England, Italy, Sweden, and Canada. Most of them chartered local boats to augment the two containers that Pasha Hawaii sponsored enabling boats from California to participate. [more...]
Another year, another Helly Hansen NOOD regatta in San Diego. And, like every year, this year was just as exciting with twists and turns throughout the three-day event March 16 – 18.
The Helly Hansen NOOD regatta is a significant I14 event for the U.S. fleet since it’s also the West Coast Championships. There were eight boats that competed in the event, with a mix from the NorCal and SoCal fleets. Unfortunately, due to an upcoming event, the PNW fleet could not make the trip down to San Diego to compete. They’ll be back next year for what should be an excellent showing. [more...]
