15–knot westerlies should give Dublin Bay Sailing Club Spring Chicken sailors grounds for optimism this Sunday at the National Yacht Club.  

After two cancellations, the 50–boat fleet is hopeful for a start this weekend after two missed Sundays so far in the pre–season warmer on Dublin Bay. As Afloat.ie previously reported there's been either too little or too much wind on the Bay so far for the popular Rathfarnham Ford sponsored series. 

Simple courses using just two fixed marks – the West Pier Outfall Buoy and the Muglins Rock – and a starting-line set by Henry Leonard’s of the DBSC Race Management team have proved a winning formula under organiser Fintan Cairns.

The series has also got support from Dun Laoghaire's Irish National Sailing School, North Sails and UK McWilliam Sails.

Attached below are handicaps and starts for Sunday.
