In 2007, the Stiletto Nationals was reformatted to be open to all multihull sailboats and renamed after the late Bob Buzzelli, avid multihull and Stiletto sailor. The regatta has grown from a small fleet of Stilettos to a varied fleet on multiple courses.
Last year’s participants came from: Arizona, Alabama, California, Colorado, Dominican Republic, Georgia, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, and all corners of Florida.
Friday’s race was, per tradition, on the Gulf of Mexico with a fleet of 7 Stilettos for their long-distance race and many other boats ranging from 14 to 31 feet. Races on Saturday and Sunday where on Sarasota Bay on three courses.
