6 The International 14 The International 14 is at the leading edge of the sailing world. This high performance, racing dinghy is where it is today because it has managed to effectively balance development and performance against fleet growth at the national and international level.
7 Throughout its long and esteemed history, the I14 has stayed at the forefront of design and technology, without forgetting why it exists – to provide great sailboat racing!
8 The International 14 is one of the oldest dinghy classes racing today. It traces its origin back to the late 19th century in Canada, England and Australia. Over the past hundred years the I14 has evolved a fierce look and high- tech design that continues to fascinate awe-struck spectators and humble even the fittest sailors the world has to offer. Today's I14 has both crew hanging from trapeze, a 350 square foot asymmetrical spinnaker launched off a nine foot pole, and an ultra-light 165 pound hull. Combined with talented crews the result is a machine that reaches speeds up to 25 knots (50 km/h).
9 Fleets exist around the world, in countries such as Canada, the US, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, Germany and Japan. Competitors converge at the world championships about every 18 months to compete and see who's got the fastest boat and the best crew. With over 80 to 100 boats, the starts are exciting!
10 Ask any fourteen sailor why they are so attracted to their bewitching little dinghy and the answer will no doubt include: the challenge, the excitement, the history and the great competition.
12 Originally named the Toronto Boat Club, the RCYC was founded in 1852 in the British tradition of a recreational yachting club that operates as an auxiliary to the navy. With Queen Victoria's permission it was renamed the Royal Canadian Yacht Club in 1854. The RCYC first moved to the island in 1881 after occupying various locations on the Toronto waterfront. The first island clubhouse was destroyed by fire in 1904. Its successor officially opened in 1906 and suffered the same fate in 1918. On August 25, 1919 Edward, Prince of Wales, laid the corner stone for the gracious two-story Southern-style clubhouse that has been the RCYC's summer home ever since. The objects of the RCYC are to: –Encourage members to become proficient in the personal management, maintenance, control and handling of their yachts, in navigation, and in all matters pertaining to seamanship –Promote yacht architecture, building and sailing in Canadian waters –Promote excellence in competitive sailing –Promote such other sports and social activities as may be desirable in the interest of Members generally The Royal Canadian Yacht Club
