The WA Branch of the Association also performs a holding function for the GP14 Class Association of Australia and both bodies are affiliated with the GP14 Class International Association. Click on the GP14 logo at the top of the page to go to the GP14 International website.

The objects of the GP Class Association in WA are focussed on promoting the GP14 and encouraging and organising racing and functions - within clubs, between clubs and interstate. To see a copy of our constitution click here.

Why not join the Association? It is inexpensive and there are many benefits to GP14 sailors including:

  • Support - The Association supports all GP14 sailors who are members - not just those who race
  • Racing - We run racing programs that are professionally organised and managed.
  • Cruising - We organise cruising events and social functions
  • Class Rules - Protecting the one-design status of the GP14 promotes close and fair racing
  • Technical Information and Know-How access to documents and members with years of GP14 experience everything from sailing techniques to how to build a boat!
  • Members' Magazine - Mainsail, the Association's very own colour magazine packed full of articles, tips and advice
  • Sailing - a common passion - a network of friends who all have at least one thing in common and an enthusiasm to share and promote it (we are never too good or too old to improve).
  • Brokerage - We provide a boat brokerage service
  • Plans - We hold a full set of plans for both Mk I and Mk II wooden boats complete with the various modification drawings. Contact us for the current price.
  • Club Boat - The Association owns a GP14 which is kept at the club and is available for potential members to use for the occasional race or as a 'try-before-you-buy' option. Contact us for details

For some membership simply provides an opportunity to share an absorbing hobby with friends - for others it the route to fulfilling their sporting ambitions. Click here for a membership form.

The WA Branch meets bi-monthly with current Committee members being:

  • President - Bruce Quail

  • Hon. Secretary - Ian Greenham

  • Hon. Treasurer - Louis Proksch

  • Class Captain (MBSC) - Steve Heywood

  • Trophy officer - Linda Harris

  • Measurer - John Collier

  • Auditor - Kim Rogers.

Email the Secretary here   if you need more information.

Crewing Positions

Crewing positions become available from time to time through the season (Nov - April). While some dinghy sailing experience is preferable a high level of experience is not required. This a great opportunity to try your hand at crewing on a GP14. Although a regular whole-of-season commitment is ideal, it is understood that this is not always possible. Whether you would like to try crewing with a view to "filling the gaps" or are considering a regular commitment we are keen to hear from you. Contact Bruce on 9244 8575.
