JET-14 (Fleet #51)
The Jet-14, developed in 1955, is a 14-foot, planing, one-design, two-person racing dinghy. The rig and sail plans are based on the Snipe, with spinnaker added in 1970. The design has proven to be rugged and long-lived with early wooden hulls still competitive against newer fiberglass hulls. The balance is such that crew weight and athletic ability are not critically important with the result that sailors aged 14 to over 70 can be competitive at all regatta levels.
