The International 14 is a high performance 2-Man, development racing dinghy with a long history of performance developments that often been adopted in the design of later boats.
For example it became one the earliest trapeze dinghys in 1938. Twin trapezes were adopted in 1984 to increase the sail carrying power and ease the handling of the large asymmetric spinnakers.
In 1996, the international version merged with the 'Aussie' version (originally with slightly different rules). Today, with hiking racks, a giant flat head main, and it's 'skiff' like hull, an up-to-date racing model bears little resemblance to the earlier boats..
