ISCYRA Rules Preamble


Rules of the ISCYRA (updated January 2017) Summary

The Star is a two person one-design sailboat and was designed by William Gardner/Francis Sweisguth in 1910/1911. 

In its old history the International Star Class Yacht Racing Association (ISCYRA), founded in 1922 by George A. Corry, has not only maintained the rules, but has constantly advanced the technical development of the boat and sailing in general. The Star founded the first Sailing World Championship ever in 1923. Since 1932 the Star has become the oldest Olympic class and is the king discipline of keelboat sailing. In the decades until now the Star has further developed to a high tech boat without losing any of its charm and elegance.
