The Star sailboat has a rich history in the world of sailing and at the Kitsilano Yacht Club in Vancouver. This classic keelboat was first introduced in 1911, and over the past century, it has become renowned for its exceptional design and elite sailor standing around the world. The Star class has long been a favorite among Olympic sailors, and its popularity continues to grow as more and more sailors discover the thrill of racing this unique and challenging boat.

Over the years, the Star has attracted some of the world's greatest sailors. From Olympic medalists to America's Cup winners, the Star class has been graced by some of the sport's most talented and accomplished competitors. Sailors like Paul Cayard, Dennis Conner, and Torben Grael have all competed in the Star class, and their achievements have helped to cement the boat's reputation as a true test of skill and ability.
