Built by              1946      Island sailing club. Some reports suggest there were 8 which would have been 61 - 68 but they  

                                were possibly never registered with the Star class. although subs were paid by Thorney island  

                                for 8 boats in 1949, and may have been sailed under numbers 1 to 8 by T.I.S.C. other reports   

                                suggest the included numbers 58 & 59.                                                          

                                They were all sold off by 1967 and probably disintegrated One was apparently found at Emsworth

Hamble Star No.  68             This number was given to an unregistered boat brought, from Kings Lynn, by a member to Erith in

At Erith                        1954. The owner believed she might be an 'extra' to the eight Thorney Island had and the number

                                might be 69 or 70. The number was chosen as a spare set of sails was available for Star 98 which

                                entailed only one number being turned upside down. There was no record of a boat number 68 at  

                                that time so that number was assigned and it was decided the number would be changed if another

                                number 68 turned up at any time with a better claim. Appears in a photograph of 4 Stars racing 

                                at Erith in the book Classic One Designs, published 1994, by Jack Coote.                       

                                Identification - Middle thwart does not line up with back of c/p case. In 1997 this Star was   

                                taken on a Charity trip by Mick Bodsworth to raise funds for the Michael Robinson Sailing Trust

                                and the Limbless Association. Mick, who has only one leg took the Star, by sail outboard and   

                                oar, from Gravesend on the Thames up the London River through central London. Then into the    

                                canal system up the Grand Union canal to Birmingham down the Severn, sailing into Bristol then 

                                back along the Kennet and Avon canal into the Thames again.

Built by Port Hamble     0      tickets were sold, making a profit of £100 the cost of the boat being £100. In August 1965 Cecil

At Erith                        Lewis the father of the then owner of Star 106 bought a set of Star sails from the  Bovington  

                                Army Camp as a spare set for 106 they asked if he wanted the scrapped boat they came from! they

                                delivered the sails and Hamble Star 100!. It came as a complete wreck, filled with about 4     

                                inches of tar throughout - the army's attempt to stop it leaking. The chines were split,       

                                centreplate case was completly rotten and all the timbers were broken. The only parts in       

                                reasonable condition were the planks. Over the next three years Ian Underdown completly rebuilt

                                in with the aid of Cecil Lewis. The outside of the hull was painted light blue and the inside  

                                cream. In 1970 she was offered for sale for £70 by R Aplin of Swanage. She was brought to E.Y.C.

                                in the early seventies, by G.Lee having been purchased from Swanage. While in his ownership is  

                                remembered for having been painted bright orange. Currently in commission at Erith

Hamble Star No. 114             Built 1961 by apprentices at Hornby and Wallasey for M.S.Robinson Erith Yacht Club. œ75 deposit

Built by Hornby&Walla 1961      paid Nov 21 1961 total cost œ135 for hull and centre plate not tackle PVC caulking for bottom  

At Erith                        (the first Star to have this frm new ) and normal for the sides, order did NOT include mast,   

                                spars rigging, bottom boards tiller, rudder, pintles and gudgeon, keel and stem band, rubbing  

                                strake all cleats and other fittings including chain plates, oars and bouyancy estimated to be 

                                worth about œ150. Boat was built from 'offcuts' from larger yachts and not as most Stars from  

                                matching planks. As a result all planks on the bottom differ in colour and the topsides have a 

                                rather attractive striped appearence with 3 of the planks each side being a matching light     

                                mahogany while the third plank down on each side was a much darker redish colour.              

                                She was also built with the mast held in a metal gate at the rear of the forward thwart, (for  

                                easier mast lowering for Dutch bridges), instead of as usual through a hole in the centre of the

                                thwart. It was intended that the builders achieve this by moving the thwart about 31/4" forward,

                                it was noticed some years later that the mast had been moved 3" forward instead!, and the thwart

                                about 6" to accomodate the gate. This had never appeared to make any difference to her sailing 

                                performance compared to other stars.                                                           

                                Sailed in Friesland approx 1960-1973

Built by Smart/Chittenden 1954  sailed at Erith with No. 1 on sail. For many years held the record on E.Y.C's Pinmill Trophy   

Original Name Shoestring        (fastest passage during a season from Erith to Pinmill) having covered the distance in          

                                The book Classic One Designs published 1994 by Jack Coote has a photo showing 4 Stars racing at

                                Erith, probably in the 1950's one of which is probably Shoestring. Hamble Star ‘No 1’ was offered

                                for sale in the Midlands recently. Some Erith members viewed her and the boat was positively

                                identified as ‘Shoestring’ unfortunately the price was too high to bring her to Erith.
