    Search for information from the International 14 class association. The Int 14 is a high performance boat that needs experienced sailors to get the best from it. Such a boat can also be a pleasing and less demanding dinghy if fitted with a reduced rig and fewer go fast features. It will go plenty fast even with a simplified rig. It is not ideally suited as a family picnic boat.
