The Lido 14 dinghy was designed by W. D. Bill Schock, owner of the Schock Corporation, in 1958 in Newport Beach, CA. Now there are active sailing fleets in CA, WA, TX, LA, OR, UT, and OH. While designed to be a comfortable day sailor, avid Lido sailors quickly took to racing. The Lido 14 Class Association was formed to maintain the strict one design nature of racing Lidos and promote all aspects of family, fun Lido 14 sailing and racing.
At its inception the boat was a sleeper, a 14-ft. beamy low-performance centerboard day-sailor that rarely planed or capsized. Yet despite its unprepossessing appearance, the Lido-14 has grown to immense popularity within the competitive arena along the West Coast, with additional fleets in Texas, Ohio, and Utah. From the outset its simplicity has attracted beginners, juniors, families, and world-class competitors.
