Strong Easterly Winds Cancel DBSC Spring Chicken Series Racing (Updated)

Unsuitable wind conditions disrupted this morning's Dublin Bay Sailing Club's (DBSC) Spring Chicken Series for a second week in a row.

While last week's Rathfarnham Ford sponsored racing was scrubbbed because of no wind, this morning's round–the–cans race was forced off by 30–mph East North East winds on the capital's waters.

Although competitors are well capable of racing in such wind speeds, the sea state on Dublin Bay is the cause of the problem for the second race.

Organisers made the call to abandon at 0800 by email to all skippers.

The DMYC Frostbite series at Dun Laoghaire was also cancelled on Sunday afternoon.
