Racing starts for Qualcomm Star World Championship 2013 from the San Diego Yacht Club on Sunday September first and finishes on September eigth.

66 yachts are registered and assembled for the 91st edition of this event, the foremost annual gathering of Star.

The Star Class is a complex mixture of great sailors and personalities. The Class is represented in 49 countries on four continents and comprised of Olympians and professional sailors as well as everyday 'beer can' racers. The Class has something to offer for every type of sailor.

Notable competitors in this year’s edition include Olympic Gold Champions, Mark Reynolds and Hal Haenel, Bill Buchan and World Champions Vincent Brun, Carl Buchan, Eric Doyle, Rick Peters, Xavier Rohart, George Szabo and Phil Trinter.

The Class has most recently seen a growth in competition from juniors and women as well as a resurgence of family teams in all levels of Star sailing. We can count three women: Laura Beigel, Jessica Costa, Nina Aviles and ten juniors below 25 years with the youngest only 13: Chris Barnard, Chas Beek, Laura Beigel, Julian Busch, Matt Dorgan, Tomas Hornos, Malcolm Mcneil, Benjamin Petterssen Josh Revkin and Killian Weise.

John Burnham, Regatta Chairman: 'San Diego Yacht Club is proud to host the prestigious 2013 Qualcomm Star World Championship regatta for the eighth time since 1938. With the Star class entering the second 100 years of its existence, our future is certainly the young sailors who are here at our club this week to vie for the championship, and we look forward to a very high level of competition for these 66 boats.

We are grateful to have so many past champions competing here, especially those from San Diego including Mark Reynolds, Vince Brun, George Szabo, and Eric Doyle. Personally, it is my pleasure to serve as the chairman for this event for the second time as I get to work with many old friends from around the world. We at San Diego Yacht Club are very grateful to all of our sponsors that are helping us with this regatta, along with some private club members and friends of the star class.'
