Notes

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.
