15 International 14’s came to Richmond Yacht Club for the biennial I-14 North American Championships. Our Canadian friends to the North elected not to make the trip and focus their travel dollars for next years World Championships being held on the same Berkeley Circle race course in 2018 – which we certainly understand but they and their antics ;-) were certainly missed. With the 15 skiffs that we did have the competition was very stacked with more than half the boats having at least…Continue

Six California based 14’s headed to Santa Barbara last weekend for what has proven over the last few years to be a very light air (and sometimes no air) race course. Santa Barbara is always beautiful and the hospitality of Santa Barbara Yacht Club is always strong and keeps getting better.

2016 International 14 Worlds
By Brad Ruetenik
After 2 wks of reflection since the end of the most recent I14 worlds in Carnac France, I wanted to put down some thoughts on this most recent adventure. As with all the other 10 worlds I have participated in over the last 20 yrs., this was a great learning event. I always have a great time seeing and traveling to other parts of the world and more important to me, are…

Hey, so I'm posting the survey results here. I removed the last two questions and anything that appeared to have personal information in it to protect the not so innocent, all really good input. Pretty interesting if you go through this in detail, a lot of things that we knew, but also some highlighted areas that are more important for the fleet to focus on as well. I'll save my 'findings and analysis' for a further discussion, but if you want to look through the data - it is posted…Continue

I just purchased an old penultimate and wanted to see if anyone recognized the boat. I plan on restoring the boat and making the rigging more user friendly by removing the mainsheet track and using a self tacking jib.
Any info or advise would be appreciated.

Six 14's were treated to excellent fall conditions this past weekend at the Totally Dinghy regatta run by RYC. Although there was no breeze at the city front (sad day for the big boats over there), we had enough breeze on Saturday to twin wire all day long, upwind and downwind, say 8 or a little more knots of breeze? The breeze was very steady and the water was flat, perfect racing conditions and allowing everyone to finish all races. Well, except for the first race on Saturday, in which…Continue
Before joining this group/class, I did some research.
I found that there was some interest in older vintage I-14's.

Back to the vintage stuff.
A while back I acquired an older 1-14 with great…Continue
