Strong North–westerlies gusting to 40–knots lead to the cancellation of this morning's Rathfarnham Ford sponsored DBSC Spring Chicken Series on Dublin Bay.

This year's weather–hit series aims to end on a high though with a final race climax next Sunday, March 26 with a prizegiving party at the National Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire for the 40–boat fleet.

Overall leader into the final race is the 1720 sportsboat Merlin. See overall results here.
