The Texas Centerboard Circuit went to Lake Ray Hubbard east of Dallas for the Rush Creek Yacht Club Spring Dinghyfest on May 15/16, 2004. The yacht club grounds were very impressive, plenty of room, fine docks and hoists, and even a restaurant and bar.
The races were very well run. The Thistle class would start first, then the Sunfish, then the MC Scows and Laser would start together, then the Portsmouth class. Here all the boats gather before the starts.
Rick Powers brought his newly acquired Catalina 16.5, the prettiest boat on the lake, he received many compliments on the sails and took 4th place. That's Kyle Smith disappearing into the distance, as usual. Kyle won the Portsmouth class.
Bill and Mary Gillilan flew their Dolphin 17 and took home the 5th place trophy.
Rey Garza brought his new Mutineer, winning 2nd place over David Luckenbach with 2 seconds and one 3rd.
This Laser sailor took a break between races.

The Centerboard Circuit had a prime waterfront campground and had a fun evening recounting the saturday races.
