#DBSC –Dick Lovegrove's Rupert was the winner of today's DBSC Sigma 33 race. Royal St. George club mate Paddy Maguire on the helm of Gwili Two was second and A. Bell sailing Miss Behavin third. It was a spectacular afternoon for sailing with 15–knot north easterly breezes but unfortunately inshore, in Seapoint Bay, the dinghy fleet suffered a lack of wind and elsewhere it was decidely flukey.
There was a reduced turnout in Dublin Bay Sailing Club's cruiser divisions for today's racing with attention focused on results across the bay in Howth at the BMW ICRA Natinoals. The Dragon class was also diverted to the National Yacht Club's staging of the 18-boat east coast championships.
In a wind starved corner of Dublin Bay Hugh Sheehy's OK Dinghy won both races of the day, with a margin of two seconds in one and nearly a minute in the other. That puts the OK clearly in the lead of the Saturday series.
