Welcome to the New Zealand J14 Class Association website
WHAT IS A J14?
The J14 is the kiwi dinghy that offers sparkling performance for adult and child or two teenager combos, and is versatile enough to allow single handed sailing as well.
The John Spencer designed J14 is an iconic Kiwi skiff that can be sailed either single or double handed.
It's the perfect boat to introduce your kids to sailing, with plenty to keep Mum or Dad interested after they've had enough of you.
For more information on current activity head over to our Facebook Site using the link at the bottom.
If you'd like to chat about why a J14 is right for you go to our Info page for a phone contact or our Contact page to send us an email.
Finally, why not consider joining the class and sailing with a fleet at one of these clubs?
Clarks Beach, Torbay, Maraetai, French Bay, Manly and Waiheke
J14s are immensely fun to race and are sailed throughout NZ with the largest fleets located in and around Auckland.
The sparkling performance of this design with plenty of pace upwind and offwind makes for exciting racing regardless of your crew combo.
We'd also like to see new owners coming to events so we can make you welcome and help with setup and tips. Part of our class ethos is being inclusive, supportive and most of all having fun; so if you're new give Jim a call or come along and get the most out of your J14.
