The Jet 14 is raced primarily in the eastern and midwest U.S., with fleets in New Jersey, Ohio, Maryland, and upstate New York. Howard Siddons designed the Jet 14 in 1955 as a doublehanded dinghy capable of planing, with the rig of a Snipe and the hull shape of an I14. In order to make construction simpler and cheaper for amateur builders, the Jet had a hull that was decked over and modified with a metal centerboard, solid spars, and sail tracks. The sixties and seventies saw the addition of flotation tanks, aluminum spars, a mid-boom traveler, and jib furling. Conventional spinnakers were approved in 1970. New boats continue to join the approximately 1,150 that have been produced to date. For more information, read the Jet 14 Wikipedia article.
