Strong westerly winds gusting to over 50mph off Dun Laoghaire Harbour this morning led to the cancellation of both the DBSC Spring Chicken Series for sailing cruisers and this afternoon's DMYC dinghy Frostbites series. 

As the popular Spring Chicken event has now lost three of its four races of the series so far, the DBSC committee aims to extend it to 19th & 26th March in order to complete the six race series.

Unfortunately, Storm Ewan also resulted in all sailing being cancelled in Kinsale today.
