About the event

We are expecting over 120 boats and some of the best amateur dinghy sailors in the country at this event. There will be a packed social programme with non-sailors and families welcome. The Club is in the centre Marazion on the water-front facing St. Michael’s Mount.

About the area

The sea front stretches for miles, with clean sandy beaches and stunning views towards the Lizard and Land’s End. The Giants Causeway is revealed at low tide, allowing foot access to the island castle. The island also boasts beautiful sub-tropical gardens, a small harbour, gift shops, a restaurant and tea rooms. Marazion is within easy traveling distance of all major attractions in Western Cornwall, and is a short distance along the beach from Penzance, and the popular destinations of the Minack Theatre and the Eden Project.

The GP14 Association is pleased to support youth sailors and the Jack Austin Fund is available to support youth competitors by way of a travel grant. The intent of the awards is to assist young people, including a member of the family of an Association member, who would not be able to attend the 2018 Gul GP14 World Championship otherwise. The Fund will be available to helms (or crews if crewing with a youth helm) who are members of the Association and who will not have reached 22 years of age by 31 December 2018.
