    Hello there,
    Sorry for the delay in answering but this is an old thread which I oly visit for time to time.

    I am afraid you need to hire the services of a qualified professional to perform an stability test of your boat and, having both the hull lines and the general arrangement plans, perform the calculations to find what the STIX is and then sign a proper report for you to give it to the regatta authorities. To get the hull lines most probably the pro will also need to measure the hull ashore.
    I hope this can be of help.
