Stillhouse Sailing Club hosted its annual “HOT” Centerboard Regatta, September 11 & 12, 2004. This two-day event for centerboard monohulls and beach catamarans was very fun. This regatta combines great racing, a party and a good dinner. The winds were light but the racing was intense. We had three classes, Laser, Sunfish, and Portsmouth. Sorry I forgot my camera.

    David Grogono from the Austin Yacht Club was smokin the Lasers with 4 wins. Tyler won a tie for 2nd with Renee. Warren won the Sunfish class, but it was close with Patricia only 3 points behind him.

    The Portsmouth class was wild, with positions changing several times each race. Rey Garza's son Danny was on the tiller and won hands down with two 1sts and 2 2nds. Luckenbach had a horrible first race with a wind shift making his spinnaker useless, finishing 6. He came back with 2 2nds and handily winning the last race with a 5 minute lead over 2nd! The wind followed him around the course that last race while deserting everyone else.
