  • Star (keelboat)


    The Star is a one-design racing keelboat for two people designed by Francis Sweisguth in 1910. The Star was the primary Olympic class keelboat from 1932 through 2012 (the last year for the event). It is now the primary class for the Star Sailors League circuit. It is sloop-rigged, with a mainsail larger in proportional size than any other boat of its length. Unlike most modern racing boats, it does not use a spinnaker when sailing downwind. Instead, when running downwind a whisker pole is used to hold the jib out to windward for correct wind flow. Early Stars were built from wood, but modern boats are generally made of fiberglass. The boat must weigh at least with a maximum total sail area of . The Star class pioneered an unusual circular boom vang track, which allows the vang to effectively hold the boom down even when the boom is turned far outboard on a downwind run. Another notable aspect of Star sailing is the extreme hiking position adopted by the crew and at times the helmsman, who normally use a harness to help hang low off the windward side of the boat with only their lower legs inside.
