Star (International)

Star (International) is a 22 ′ 8 ″ / 6.9 m monohull sailboat designed by Francis Sweisguth and built by Folli Boats (LARIOVELA s.n.c.), Lillia (Cantiere Nautico Lillia), Binks Yacht Contructions, Abeking & Rasmussen, Lippincott Boat Works, Blanchard Boat Co., Eichenlaub Boat Co., Buchan Boat Co., Costantini (Chantier Naval Costantini), and Mader Bootswerft starting in 1911.

Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

The STAR, among the most prestigious, competitive, and enduring one-design classes, was first selected for the Olympic games in 1932 and continued in that role until 2012. Supported by a worldwide association, the STAR as a class has been one of the best organized in sailing, with more than 7,500 yachts built over its 100 year history.

One Design Profile: Star Class

April 27, 2013 by Sail1Design Editor Leave a Comment

“The class of champions”

In the past one hundred years, the Star has established itself at the forefront of the international sailing community. The first one-design class and core Olympic racing yacht since 1932, the Star attracts sailors of varying ages and skill levels from all over the world. With nearly 2,000 boats competing annually and over 170 active fleets world-wide, the development of the class is not likely to slow down in the foreseeable future.

star sailboat data

Designed in 1911 by naval architect Francis Sweisguth, the Star was born to replace the 17-foot “Bug,” which was one of the most popular keelboats at the time. By May 1911, the first Star class regatta was held on Long Island Sound and featured five of Sweisguth’s new boats. By 1922, the Stars already numbered in the hundreds, thus leading to the foundation of the International Star Class Yacht Racing Association (ISCYRA).

star sailboat data

Just under twenty-three feet in length, the hull is long and narrow and features an integrated bulb keel positioned just aft of the mast. In adherence to strict class rules, the Star weighs 1,479 pounds and is typically constructed of fiberglass. Older wooden hulls can still be found from time to time, but rarely in competition. The hull has gentle, sweeping chines leading toward the water line that not only provide a speed advantage, but attribute to the yacht’s aesthetically pleasing appearance.

During the yacht’s one hundred year history, new features have been incorporated into the design in an effort to maintain the class’ position as the pinnacle of the international racing community. The class association began asserting a control over new refinements, not to stifle progress, but to maintain a level of competition based more on the skill of the sailor than the technological advancements of the yacht. Some of the features include:

  • Adjustable jib leads
  • Crew hiking vest
  • Suction bailers
  • Unique, circular boom vang
  • Whisker pole
  • Strict class association sail measurements

One of the interesting features of the Star is the hiking vest. The vest is worn by the crew and allows him or her to adopt a unique hiking position by “drooping” their body over the side of the hull. In addition to the vest, the Star also features a circular vang system. Designed for the star, but eventually adopted other classes, the circular vang system provides a safe means to deal with the enormous loads of the yacht’s large sail plan.

star sailboat data

Numerous champions of the sailing world spent time sailing the Star and hold prestigious international titles. A Star Class World Championship is often considered on the most coveting trophies in all of sailing. Despite the high level of competition at top tier events, the Star also offers opportunities to local and amateur sailors. The depth of skill level and opportunity is unrivaled by any other racing class. Sailors looking to compete at the local level can often gain experience with the boat and progress up through the levels of competition, not to mention enjoy the thrill of sailing such an incredible boat.

Get involved with the Star Class! If you want to begin racing there are plenty of Stars out there looking for a good home. Thanks to the regulation in design features, many older Stars perform just as well as their newer counterparts and run at affordable prices. If you are a former college sailor or young professional looking to stay active at the highest level of competition or looking for a fast boat to sail at the local level perhaps a Star should be your next boat…

Sadly, in 2011, it was decided that the keelboats would be removed as an Olympic class following the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Recently rumors began to circulate of comeback for the 2016 Games; however these were quashed almost immediately by the ISCYRA. Despite being struck from the Olympic books the Star class has showed no signs of losing momentum. Huge turnouts for Barcardi Race Week and the 2012 Star Winter Series appear to have breathed new life into the yacht. With hundreds of local regattas scheduled this year and dozens at the internationals and championship level, the Star class remains strong

Records of the International Star Class Yacht Racing Association

Manuscripts collection 208, history of the international star class yacht racing association.

The Star Class was founded at Port Washington, Long Island, in 1911. Initially 22 Stars were built. Fifteen went to owners at the American Yacht Club in Rye, New York, and the remainder to other clubs on Western Long Island Sound. Since then the rig has been improved and modernized several times, but the hull design remains unchanged.

In January 1922, the Star Class Yacht Racing Association was created at a meeting in New York City. A constitution and a set of by-laws were adopted, and five fleet charters granted. This was the first one-design association, and with far-sighted leadership was nursed through its formative years into the successful international organization that its members enjoy today. With over 160 local fleets in 27 countries, it is considered the world’s greatest one-design racing class. Approximately 8,000 Stars have been built to date (1989), all unified under the umbrella of the I.S.C.Y.R.A.

International officers include the President, Vice Presidents, Secretary, and Treasurer. Class policy is set by the International Governing Committee, with representatives from Europe, North America, South America, and Australia. Some tasks are handled by special committees such as the Administrative, Judicial, Development, Technical, and Measurement committees. There are also fleet captains and secretaries, district secretaries and continental vice presidents, all performing various local functions.

A monthly newsletter “Starlights” is published, along with the annual year book, “The Log”. These publications contain descriptions and accounts of club events, and more importantly, race results, class rules and regulations, specifications, and other by-laws of the Association (The G.W. Blunt White Library has a complete set of “Starlights”, and “The Log”, cataloged and available for research.)

For a more detailed history of the I.S.C.Y.R.A. we suggest Forty Years Among the Stars, by George Elder, pub. 1955. A copy is in the Library’s collection cataloged as: Rare Books GV 823 I5.7 E4.2 ALSO: A History of The Star Class; The First Eighty Years, by C. Stanley Ogilvy, pub. 1991. A copy of this book is also in the Library’s collection. (Revised Jan. 1994)

Scope and Content

The Archives, currently about 3,000 pieces, is contained in acid-free document boxes and file folders, and is shelved in our manuscripts vault. The first 17 boxes represent the initial gift of records received in 1989. Boxes 1 – 12 are organized by committee and are chronologically arranged. Here one will find Administrative Committee minutes, International Governing Committee papers, Development Committee correspondence, numerous measurement and technical reports, plans, specifications, and Judicial Board records. Boxes 13 & 13a contain various Fleet Charters granted between 1922 and 1985. Box 14 has trophy records and related photos, while Box 15 contains George W. Elder’s manuscript for his book, Forty Years Among The Stars. Two boxes hold miscellaneous files and numerous race programs, circulars, brochures, and other publicity.

Boxes 18 – 31 contain material received in 1990 and is organized in the same fashion as the records previously described. Consequently anyone interested in the papers of the Technical Committee must see Boxes 11, 21 & 22, etc. Correspondence, and related papers for the World’s Championships, 1942 – 1991, can be found in Boxes 26, 27, & 27a. Box 32 has additional papers received in 1995, which are clearly identified in the folder descriptions.

Of special importance to the Archives are the Registers for Star Class boats, numbers 1 – 5100 recorded between the years 1911 and 1974. These 17 volumes are arranged by boat number, and are listed in this Inventory following Box 17.

Double Ratchamatic® Mainsheet

Shift gears from 2:1 to 4:1 as smoothly as a high-performance sportscar by simply letting go of one line. The double swivel cam keeps both gross-trim and fine-tune close at hand. The load-sensing ratchet shuts off in light air for smooth easing.

"The two-speed mainsheet system helps with leeward mark roundings, jibes, and pumping the main. The load-sensing Ratchamatic® also lets me ease faster at the weather mark than a standard ratchet does." — Mark Reynolds, Star World Champion.

Class History

Designed in 1911 by Francis Sweisguth, the two-man Star is simple enough for the novice, but complex enough to challenge the world's best. It has been an Olympic class since 1932. The Star features a sleek, lightweight hull and powerful sailplan. A flexible spar can be tuned to "depower" when the breeze kicks up. The large main is infinitely adjustable. One race on a Star often hooks sailors for life.

International Star Class revisited

The International Star has turned into one of the best, most competitive and rewarding classes to sail in the world, but as with most modern boats it has become more and more expensive. Is it time for a homebuild Star plan?

There have been huge developments in the ease and sophistication of building possible for homebuilt boats in general. Could the Star take advantage of that.

For News and Information about Wooden International Star Class Yachts see Facebook.

The best place to get updates about both vintage wooden Starboats … … and potential new builds … See the Wooden Star Group on facebook for International news.

A Great Article about a Revival In Classic Wooden Starboat Racing

New builds are one option, but there is a big movement in restoration.

Here an article on Cayard, Andy MacDonald and John MacCausland and the Woodie Regatta.

The Origination of the Star was as a Simple and Fast Build home built boat.

But the Star was designed in the ’20s (pic right)as the sort of boat a handyman could knock together out of a pile of timber over a winter to go sailing when the weather got nicer.

Maybe it is time to regather that ethos but to build it strong and stiff and simply using modern methods.

I don’t think ANYTHING else need be changed But homebuilt hulls could be allowed that would cost maybe $4-5000 rather than the tens of thousands required now for semi-mass produced foam sandwich boats.

And an opportunity for backyard development through shared knowledge.

A great example is an early boat by Bill Buchan coming out from a winter of rebuilding to increase the prismatic coefficient and stability.

Why I am thinking about Wooden International Star Class Yachts

Now a couple of co-incidences – Stars came up on a couple of forum threads I was involved in. On the WoodenBoat Forum woodenboat forum thread

And on the Sailing Anarchy forum where a clever fellow has made a nice mod to get an old star sailing cheaply (and somewhat quickly) Frankenstar

I try to be a bit of an activist in terms of trying to get people to see that building boats in wood is plain good sense. It provides a cheap entre into some competitive classes at not much cost – it allows the classes to grow.

You can see from the posts below and above that there are thousands of people out there wanting to build their own boat – and almost none of them choose class racing boats.

This is what I ended up writing about Stars and the possibility of making the class grow (or any other class that can be built in wood) by allowing a competitive wooden boat to be built that uses modern simplified building methods. It is just that the Star is more suitable than most

Originally Posted by rbgarr “Boatmik (thats me – Ed)- Which Olympic classes are the ones that are built of wood other than the Star?” My Reply: And which of those olympic class boats have growing fleets around the world? The answer is none. All of them have declined in active sailing numbers around the world.

Picture and boat by Christian Lanctot – his boat doing it’s stuff – you can see the original transom.

And I doubt a competitive wooden star could be built – because they are still required to be built of traditional planked construction – they don’t allow plywood!!! Or timber/glass composite.

Read the class rules here – see section 1.6 Wood construction – the wooden building method is straight out of the 1920s – they even require screws and nails which no-one interested in modern lightweight timber boats has used for a decade or more.

The picture right shows boats being built in the 1930s – it is possibly time things were changed.

If it was allowed I (or anyone else using modern methods) could have a hull built in three weeks that may be totally competive with the best foam sandwich boats in the world and they wouldn’t even need to build a strongback and molds – it is usual to make the sides and bulkheads self supporting. (see the pdr construction in the blog below or all the other boats on I know I can make it lighter – so if a conservative approach is used to build to the same weight as existing boats a lot of the normal internal timber structure could be eliminated and the result would be a boat with a very clean interior.

What if people could build a competitive Star hull in wood for around $4000 rather than the tens of thousands they cost now in foam sandwich?

There’s nothing to the structure – it is perfect for modern timber construction – all could be ply and the bottom (as it is compounded) could be built of wide cedar strips glassed both sides – take a day to plank it up.

It really is a handyman level project because of the simplicity of the hullshape and would take a full three weeks if the hull construction method was thought through properly – then the keel and skeg, rudder etc..

What if the Star Association could get another 5 or 10 or 50 people into the class through home building? It could be one of the strengths of the class. But, hey, lets be realistic – no-one from conventional classes is going to be reading this or has any interest whatsoever in departures from what they are doing now.

This is an old boat Duckflat and I modded up. using modern methods we pulled 300kg out of the structure but kept the character – performance went up more than a little too. link

The star is a really good example of what I was talking about before -the crazy arms race.

The class had close racing in 1929 and anyone could build one – they were a handyman project. And racing was close and hundreds of people became involved. RAcing is still close but ppl are forced to spend tens of thousands ($100K for a campaign?) to do it because if one has flash gear – everyone else has to as well.

The Star 30 is a 29.94ft masthead sloop designed by Alan Andrews and built in fiberglass since 1986.

7 units have been built..

The Star 30 is a moderate weight sailboat which is a good performer. It is stable / stiff and has a low righting capability if capsized. It is best suited as a day-boat. The fuel capacity is originally very small. There is a very short water supply range.

WEATHER ALERT

A severe thunderstorm warning in effect for Broward County

Boater, 78, ided in crash that killed teen off key biscayne; lawyer: ‘he is absolutely devastated’.

Chris Gothner , Digital Journalist

Christian De La Rosa , Reporter

KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. – Officials with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission identified the boater they said was involved in a deadly crash off Key Biscayne over the weekend.

Ella Adler, 15, died Saturday near the Nixon Beach Sandbar. Authorities initially said she had been waterskiing, but a newly-released FWC report said she was wakeboarding.

Investigators say she fell into the water while being towed and was struck and killed by the passing boater, who never stopped to help.

The report, released Wednesday, identified the operator as Carlos Guillermo Alonso, 78, of Coral Gables. Authorities said he’s cooperating in the investigation.

FWC investigators could be seen Tuesday on the vessel, which was docked behind Alonso’s home in the Hammock Oaks neighborhood. It was later taken to the U.S. Coast Guard station in Miami Beach and towed away.

The report states that Adler had been wakeboarding with someone else who was further away and both “fell off at different times/locations and both were in the water simultaneously.”

Officials said they continue to investigate and have not announced whether Alonso will be charged; it’s not clear whether authorities have determined if he was even aware of the fatal crash.

Attorney Lauren Krasnoff is representing Alonso and released a statement on his behalf, which can be read below:

Adler’s funeral was held on Monday. She was a student at Ransom Everglades High School and is the granddaughter of Michael Adler, the U.S. ambassador to Belgium.

A total of 13 people were on the boat towing her at the time, according to FWC.

That includes Caitlyn White, 14, whose mother, Melisa White, spoke at a recent Key Biscayne Village Council meeting.

“The Adler family, their lives are forever changed, but those girls who had to witness it, my hope is that they go forward and make Ella’s memory a blessing,” she told councilmembers, thanking the village for its support.

An FWC spokesperson said the agency has made “significant progress” investigating her death; anyone with additional information is asked to call 888-404-3922.
