Uffa Fox classic 14's up for Auction

Eight Uffa Fox International 14s will be auctioned by Time and Tide Boats at their Classic Boat Auction, Beale Park on Saturday, 3 June.Images by TimeandTideBoats.com - K380 Lancing -

Included in the collection is Uffa's famous Avenger, one of his earliest designs that went on to win 52 firsts, 2 second places, and 3 thirds out of 57 starts.

The International 14's that came out of Uffa's own yard on the Isle of Wight went through continuous development year on year, as he competed and many won Prince of Wales Trophies.

Thankfully many of the originals have been preserved in a national private collection as well as by individual owners.

The hope is for members of a sailing club or individuals to get involved in buying and housing this fleet and organising regular competitions, with the aim to win a new trophy to be known as the Uffa Fox Memorial Cup.
