Why a Bell?

This is alleged to be because the boat’s designer, Jack Holt, designed it whilst in Aberdyfi, Wales, and it is a reference to the legendary bells of Cantre’r Gwaelod. But a more likely explanation, however, is that it relates to the original manufacturer or the boat, the Bell Woodworking Company.
 
Originally designed by Jack Holt in 1949, the GP14 has developed into a dinghy for the 21st century, still offering fantastic sailing and competitive racing at all levels, internationally.  The class is active in Australia, UK, Ireland, Australia, South Africa, Sri Lanka and parts of north-eastern USA.  
 
It is also well suited to be used for learning, training, cruising, or general sailing.
