The 100th Anniversary of the Star Class World Championships will be held next year September 10-17, 2022 in Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA. The host for the event will be the prestigious Eastern Yacht Club.

The Star was first built in 1911 and the Class held its first World Championship in 1922. Since 1922, the Star Class World Championship has been won by over 72 different helmsmen and 75 different crew. The event is held annually at some of the best sailing venues in the world. "The Star Class is honored to approve the Eastern Yacht Club and Marblehead as the host of our 100th World Championship. We look forward to a great week of racing and celebrations." Dr. Hubert Merkelbach, President of the Star Class.

Eastern Yacht Club has hosted the Star Class World Championship twice; first in 1981 and most recently in 1997.

Top Star Class sailors from around the world are expected to attend. International racers can look forward to a full schedule of Star Class racing with four major championships on the United States Eastern seaboard during the summer of 2022: The Bacardi Cup, The North American Championship, The Western Hemisphere Championship and concluding with the World Championship in September, not to mention several regularly scheduled local events on the east coast.
