I14 US Fleet:

With some upcoming significant I14 US Fleet regattas, it’s important to ensure that participating boats have active fleet membership.  Membership is open to anyone who actively sails 14s, has sailed 14s in the past, or those who want to support the fleet to continue its growth and success.

Membership requirements, options and how to pay are as follows:

Paying Fleet Membership Dues:

There is only one option for paying dues.  If this option is not possible, please reach out to me individually and we can figure out a method that I can accept and then transfer dues into the fleet account.  I am unable to accept checks since I have no current way to cash them.
