Re: Just acquired an early Star. Totally green to sailing.
I raced a Star on Frisco Bay early in my career and found it to be one of the most complicated and difficult small sailboats to sail. Certainly not a day sailor to take your friends out on for a few hours.
However, for many who enjoy rebuilding (or building for that matter) boats, the fun comes from the work, not so much the sailing afterwards. At any rate, wherever you derive your enjoyment, it is going to be a learning experience.
"Any idiot can make a boat go; it takes a sailor to stop one." Spike Africa aboard the schooner Wanderer in Sausalito, Ca. 1964.
“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” ― Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
