Baltimore Sailing Club brothers Peter and Robert O’Leary are signed up for the inaugural Junior Star Worlds in Miami’s Biscayne Bay from 3-6 February.

Last year’s bronze medallists in the Star Europeans join a list of more than 30 skipper-crew pairs under 30 already entered to compete for the first junior trophy in the storied International Star Class.

Others in the pedigree field include 2014 Star World Champion and 2017 Star Sailors League Finals winner Frithjof Kleen from Garmany, who is crewing for Italian Laser Radial world champion Guido Gallinaro.
