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.

Eastern YC Announces Reduced Entry Fee for all Competitors at the 2022 Star World Championship presented by Bacardi

star class yacht racing association

On September 8-17, the International Star Class Yacht Racing Association (“ISCYRA”) will celebrate the 100 th anniversary of the Star Class World Championship and Eastern Yacht Club (“EYC”) has stepped up to host the historic event.   Eastern Yacht Club enjoys a long history of hosting major yachting events.   A couple months ago, EYC and the Star Class Legacy Foundation combined to significantly reduce the entry fee for competitors under the age of thirty (“U-30”) teams. 

Corporate Sponsorship of this historic event has been strong. Therefore, in the spirit of supporting the competitors, EYC has committed to reducing the entry fee for all athletes.  Sailors from all over the world will come to race and celebrate the Championship and with seventy-five international entries already, the Championship may include over 100 teams. 

“Eastern Yacht Club is committed to supporting the events and athletes in our sport.  This commitment will help defer some of the competitors’ costs and help make the 100 th anniversary of our World Championship a special event.” said Paul Cayard, Western Hemisphere Vice-President of the International Star Class Yacht Racing Association.

“The Eastern Yacht Club is honored and thrilled to be hosting this milestone event for the legendary Star class,” said Henry Brauer, Commodore of the Eastern Yacht club.  “These competitors embody what we all aspire to as sailors:  excellence, camaraderie, and a deep respect for the history of yachting.  We view the entry fee reduction as our appreciation for all those who make this class a unique and special community on the water.”

District 6 Championship moved to Sept 18/19

Foss and I agree that the Sept 18/19 weekend will:

- allow more US boats to participate after the NA regatta 

- reduce the star events to a more reasonable interval

- likely increase the English Bay fleet size

- there will be no Star regatta on Sept 4/5

Star Class World Championship

The world-renowned beverage brand Bacardi will support the International Star Class Yacht Racing Association as the presenting sponsor of the 2022 Star World Championship, 8-17 September 2022.

The 2022 Star World Championship will celebrate 100 years of history since the first World Championship was held in 1922. This milestone event will be held in Marblehead, Massachusetts on the eastern seaboard of the United States. This year’s event will celebrate one of sailing’s most popular, successful and appreciated boat and its legends.

Star Champions are written in history, with their names inscribed on the sport’s most prestigious yachting trophies, including the America’s Cup, the Olympics and numerous offshore titles.

Remaining true to the heritage of the Star Class since 1922, the World’s will be contested over six days with one long daily race, bringing together the world’s best alongside emerging talent in a battle of endurance, fitness, strategy and competition. The single race format is also reflected at the iconic Bacardi Cup, partner of the Star Class since 1927 – representing one of the longest standing alliances in sporting history.

Honoring this lasting relationship, as presenting sponsor for the 100th Anniversary Star World Championship Bacardi will host an open bar every night and hospitality for the 100th Anniversary Gala Dinner on Wednesday, September 14.

“We are thrilled to have our longtime partner, Bacardi, celebrate this historic Championship with us. Bacardi has always stood with the Star Class and this celebratory week will be no exception,” said Tom Londrigan, President of the International Star Class Yacht Racing Association.

Continuing its reputation for hosting exceptional shoreside hospitality, the unique style of the Bacardi brand will hit the sweet spot to maximize sailors’ enjoyment post-race.

“2022 is a milestone centenary celebration for the globally renowned Star Class, marking an exceptional measure of success at the heart of sailing. The Star can proudly reflect on its achievements and enduring popularity with sailors worldwide” declared Eddie Cutillas of Bacardi USA. “Bacardi is proud to have been a partner of the Star Class since 1927, from the origins of the Bacardi Cup in Cuba to the present day in Miami, USA and now at the 100th celebration of the World Championships.”

“On behalf of Bacardi, as presenting sponsor of the 2022 Star World Championships, I wish everyone a spectacular and memorable event,” Cutillas concluded.

Staking a place on the Star World Championship leader board remains as competitive as ever and the challenge for victory is as tough as the first edition back in 1922. The 2022 Star World Championship will take place at the Eastern Yacht Club in Marblehead from September 8th to 17th.

WGS 84 coordinate reference system is the latest revision of the World Geodetic System, which is used in mapping and navigation, including GPS satellite navigation system (the Global Positioning System).

Geographic coordinates (latitude and longitude) define a position on the Earth’s surface. Coordinates are angular units. The canonical form of latitude and longitude representation uses degrees (°), minutes (′), and seconds (″). GPS systems widely use coordinates in degrees and decimal minutes, or in decimal degrees.

Latitude varies from −90° to 90°. The latitude of the Equator is 0°; the latitude of the South Pole is −90°; the latitude of the North Pole is 90°. Positive latitude values correspond to the geographic locations north of the Equator (abbrev. N). Negative latitude values correspond to the geographic locations south of the Equator (abbrev. S).

Longitude is counted from the prime meridian ( IERS Reference Meridian for WGS 84) and varies from −180° to 180°. Positive longitude values correspond to the geographic locations east of the prime meridian (abbrev. E). Negative longitude values correspond to the geographic locations west of the prime meridian (abbrev. W).

UTM or Universal Transverse Mercator coordinate system divides the Earth’s surface into 60 longitudinal zones. The coordinates of a location within each zone are defined as a planar coordinate pair related to the intersection of the equator and the zone’s central meridian, and measured in meters.

Elevation above sea level is a measure of a geographic location’s height. We are using the global digital elevation model GTOPO30 .
