    Just to alert everyone,  the GP14 is featured in the June issue of Classic Boat magazine,  already now on sale,  as this month’s Affordable Classic.

    The headline photo is of my own erstwhile boat A Capella,  sailing with first reef in conditions far more blustery than the photo suggests,  off Holy Island (Lindisfarne) during the 2010 DCA Holy Island Rally.   Two smaller photos are of Steve Parry’s Sea Willow,  “the Old Yellow Boat”.

    The text is largely compiled from information provided by both Steve and myself,  heavily pruned (of course),  and is largely accurate;   I am sure the occasional inaccuracies are editorial and arose during the pruning process.

    Overall it is a good article,  and does the class proud.

    No mention in this article of either Pimpernell or Mizpah (No. 19,  restored by Terry Gumbley),  since this article was primarily about the class rather than about individual examples,  but we are trying to interest the magazine in a fuller article for the future about the restorations of these two boats.
