The International Fourteen is one of the world’s premier sailing classes. It is a two-person, twin-trapeze skiff, with an unlimited area asymmetric spinnaker and 200 square feet of combined mainsail and headsail area.

International 14s have been sailed at HISC for many years, and the club has hosted the prestigious Prince of Wales Cup a number of times, and the class European Championships.
The Fourteen is for sailors looking for a fast, challenging boat in which they can develop their own ideas while sailing in the company of a group of like-minded, open and welcoming competitors.
Today the Fourteen is one of the most challenging, exciting, technical and ultimately satisfying boats to sail. Fourteens, the class saying goes, are forever; once you’ve tried one, no other boat will be quite the same.
