DBSC Turkey Shoot 2013 Won By a Mermaid

#dbsc – Neither a J109 or a 1720 sporsboat could match the pace of the consistent performance of the Beneteau First 50, (Seamus Fitzpatrick) the overall winner of the 2013 Rathfarnham Ford sponsored DBSC Turkey Shoot that concluded on Dublin Bay yesterday in moderate to strong conditions.

The J109 Indecision (Declan Hayes and others) was second overall to Mermaid IV, by a margin of 20 nett points.

It was only the second time in the 12–year history of the series that the full seven race series was completed.

Third was the Cartoonist, a 1720 (Ken Lawless and others) just two points behind the J-boat. Full race results for yesterday are downloadable below with overalls series results also available below.
