K-14; Flica II was launched in 1939, she was the last boat to be given a yard number at W. Fife & Son, which closed the same year after 140 years. There was great attention drawn to the performance of the new yacht as Mr Goodson had had many good results with Flica and her successor was the first and only Twelve designed by John Laurent Giles.
Five years prior Laurent Giles had designed Etain for Hugh Goodson’s daughter; Mr Goodson was later to help found The Sail Training Association and Flica II, although never an Americas Cup challenger, was none the less notable in the International Yacht Racing Rule 12m class. She was one of the largest Twelve Metres ever built however some commentators deemed her to be too long, too narrow and too heavy. In fact, at the end of the season, she had just 1 first, 1 second and 5 third places out of 24 starts and this was attributed to rigging issues rather than the design.
