Star Class 3909 built in 1958

Star Class profile and sailplan
I built the Star Class 3909 in western red cedar from the ISCYRA plans at 22'8".
I fiberglassed it before it every hielt the water.
It was a fairly successful racing boat even though I used the keel from Star Class 375 which was not as smooth as the newer keels.
It was very fast up wind but slow down wind even though I made it as flat as the tolerances would allow.
I later owned the 1936 International One-Design Class 33' 5" wooden racing sloop and refurbished her extensively.
