The Star Class Association at Erith was set up many years ago to help preserve the fleet of Hamble Stars at Erith Yacht Club. Initially all the boats were all privately owned. They were bought and sold through the class to ensure they remained together as a fleet. The profits on these sales being used to set up a fund for purchase of communal tools for working on the boats, bulk purchases of materials needed such as ash for timbers and copper nails and roves were also made. While some of the boats are still privately owned and some now belong to the Michael Robinson Sailing Trust the rest are now owned by the class and 'stewardship' granted to those who will be sailing them and taking on the responsibility of maintaining them in the manner to which they are accustomed
