The B14 is a one-design dinghy developed by Julian Bethwaite from his 18-foot skiff designs and was the forerunner to his Olympic 49er.
It is a two-crew skiff-style dinghy with wings but no trapeze. Typically crews are in the weight range 125 – 180 kg. This makes the B14 an ideal boat for teenagers through to adults.
It is now raced as a sit-out boat rather than with the original trapeze configuration.
