      Portsmouth centerboard fleet racing can be a good option. After a hesitant start (we fleeted out with three boats), the Texas' Wetas were welcomed once we started racing with the Texas Centerboard Circuit. Most clubs just want boats to come out and play. The boats you listed are a lot slower than the Weta, so see if any International Canoes, 505s or C Scows are around for you to pace. But don't let yourself get stuck with the Portsmouth and Formula cats. The food and beer will be gone by the time you make it to shore.

      Jon's already answered your question about available hull colors. I'd recommend going with the white or gray. Although the red boats like mine are no longer available because they are faster and point higher, hull scratches show up more readily. Not sure if that's the case with the banana boats. Maybe someone with a yellow one can chime in.
