A low tide and north–westerly wind gusting to 15–knots greeted a strong turnout of Dublin Bay Sailing Club's 200 boat fleet in 20 classes for last night's first Thursday race of 2017. Provisional results are downloadable below.

Paul O'Higgins's Rockabill was a winner in Class Zero in both IRC and ECHO, the JPK10.80 moving up a division from last season.

In Class One, new arrival Juggerknot, Andrew Algeo's J109 continued its winning debut in a fine turnout of 16–boats. The Royal Irish entry won last Saturday's first ISORA race to Wicklow and last night was top boat in both IRC, ECHO and scratch results.
