GP14 Membership

The GP14 Ireland committee would like to encourage you to become a member of the GP14 International Class Association.


Helms for GP14 events must be a member but we would also encourage all helms and crews to join.

The GP14 Class International Association coordinates support for GP14 sailing worldwide, including in the UK and Ireland. The extensive work of the international and Irish committee depends on the support of GP14 sailors and ultimately your membership of the International Class Association. Through the Association, its volunteers and the work of Area Representatives, we are able to offer many benefits. It is, therefore, crucial that all sailors around the world support their International Class Association by joining.


Why join?

Membership of the Association is inexpensive and provides many benefits to anyone who owns or sails a GP14, including:


  • GP14 Racing Circuit - class racing at world, national and regional level
  • Social Events - outstanding social events, not to be missed
  • Cruising - support and events for those who want to use their GP14 to cruise rather than race
  • Coaching - organised coaching at all levels – bronze, silver or gold fleet sailor, young or young at heart (we are never too good or too old to improve)
  • Class Rules - protecting the one-design status of the GP14 and controlling maximum prices, which helps to promote fair racing and prevent the value of used-boats crashing
  • Technical Information and Know-How – access to documents and members with years of GP14 experience – everything from sailing techniques to how to build a boat!
  • Members’ Magazine - Mainsail, the Association’s very own colour magazine packed full of articles, tips and advice
  • Website and emails - access to a huge amount of information at the click of a button, including “Members” sections containing lots of helpful hints
  • Insurance Scheme - approved discounted insurance scheme
  • Sailing – a common passion- a network of friends who all have at least one thing in common and an enthusiasm to share and promote it
