Star Deck Layout

Double Ratchamatic® Mainsheet

Shift gears from 2:1 to 4:1 as smoothly as a high-performance sportscar by simply letting go of one line. The double swivel cam keeps both gross-trim and fine-tune close at hand. The load-sensing ratchet shuts off in light air for smooth easing.

"The two-speed mainsheet system helps with leeward mark roundings, jibes, and pumping the main. The load-sensing Ratchamatic® also lets me ease faster at the weather mark than a standard ratchet does." — Mark Reynolds, Star World Champion.

 

 

Carbo T2™ Jib Cars

Lightweight Carbo T2 soft-attach blocks are drawn snug to the body of the Micro CB car for a clean deck sweep.

 

 

Radial Vang Traveler

Harken's sculpted aluminum car is machined to accommodate the tight vang radius on Star boats. A simple high-load block is recessed to prevent block-to-block vanging.

Class History

Designed in 1911 by Francis Sweisguth, the two-man Star is simple enough for the novice, but complex enough to challenge the world's best. It has been an Olympic class since 1932. The Star features a sleek, lightweight hull and powerful sailplan. A flexible spar can be tuned to "depower" when the breeze kicks up. The large main is infinitely adjustable. One race on a Star often hooks sailors for life.
