Competitors in this weekend's first race of the DBSC Turkey Shoot Winter Sailing Series on Dublin Bay are being warned to stay away from rocks at the North end of Dalkey Island with Sunday's first race starting two hours after low water. While it may appear obvious for sailors to steer around all rocks this particular outcrop has 'given some trouble' this season, say organisers, who have issued a useful reminder of the submerged hazard. Known locally as 'Leac Buidhe', the rocks in Muglins Sound are at the following approximate GPS co-ordinates: 53 16.64 N 06 05.13 W 

A note published in this year's DBSC yearbook also refers to the rock:  When approaching Muglins Sound from Scotsman's Bay, boats are advised to keep to the port-hand side of the Sound, avoiding the Leac Buidhe rock on their starboard side at 53 16.616N, 06 05.149W

ISORA sailor Peter Ryan has been in touch (scroll down) to warn of other rocks to the south–west of the Muglins.
