Star Sailors League


Welcome to the International Star Class, home of the premier one-design racing keel boat in the world.  For 100 years Star sailors have led the way in advancing the sport of competitive sailing, and have been honored by sailing in the Olympic Games since 1932.  With over 2,200 members and fleets in 38 countries, Star Class championship events are hosted at venues around the globe. At a Star Class regatta you will find Olympic and World Champions competing alongside sailors of all ages and skill levels eager to sail at the highest level of the sport. Join us as we lead the sport of sailing into our next century.

"To be Star world champion I think is the biggest achievement that a sailor can have.
To win two times is to be a part of the story of Star class, it means a lot. 
The Star class is very special. It’s the class of all the biggest names."
Bruno Prada (BRA) after winning the 2011 World Championship with Robert Scheidt
