Houston Yacht Club's Houston Offshore One Design (HOOD) regatta began with some 94 boats spread over three lines. Spectacular Texas weather with smooth seas, moderate winds and cool temperatures made for some wonderful racing for all involved. The big boat class consisted of five J/105s and four J/109s each in separate fleets. After the smoked cleared, Uzi Ozeri's Infinity took first with five bullets. Bee Bednar's Stinger finished second, while Tylan Ilhan's Zippity finished third in the 105 fleet.
