Notes

An acronym for General Purpose Dinghy, the GP14 was originally sponsored by 'Yachting World' magazine for home construction using Marine Plywood. (A comparatively new material at the time.) Besides being a high performance sailer, it is easy to row, and can be easily powered with a small outboard motor. The GP14 soon became one of the UK’s most popular sailing dinghies for one-design fleet racing.
