Repairing of Star boat LEISE (1952) for the WCT in Troense 2017

Located in the city of Svendborg, close to Troense, The Danish Yachting Museum tells the 150-year-old story of sailing and yachting in Denmark. With 120 historical vessels, the museum boasts one of the largest collections in Scandinavia.

The museum is repairing its Star boat from 1952, LEISE (3261), making it ready for exhibition at Troense during the next World Championship. Through Danish Sailing Association we have set up a crowdfunding, allowing star sailors and everybody interested in the WCT to chip in to help save the historic boat. Everyone donating money towards the repair will have their names engraved on a plaque accompanying LEISE in the years ahead.

Leading up to the world championships, the museum will issue updates on the repair in the hope that as many sailors as possible will participate in the crowdfunding plan. You can read about LEISE, the work and a funny story with an Olympic spark at

Thank you for helping.
Kind regards
The Danish Yachting Museum

    Der er så mange gode minder ved Staren, Leise er en af dem som kan og bør bevares.

    Jeg har sejlet Star igennem mang år, og mener den har en plads på DANMARKS MUSEUM FOR LYSTSEJLADS.
