No race last weekend means the 1720 sportsboat overall leader after five races sailed will be the boat to watch this weekend in the final race of the 2019 Citroen South DBSC Turkey Shoot on Dublin Bay. Handicaps and Starts will be the same as for last Sunday's cancelled race.
After a benign series for the first four races, the 66-boat fleet will again be watching the weather forecasts this weekend with early indications showing more strong winds for race seven on Sunday. In an update to competitors DBSC organiser Fintan Cairns summed up the feeling of the winter fleet by saying: 'Here's hoping and praying we get racing next Sunday'.
As Afloat previously reported, Optique leads overall on 25 points, five points clear of second overall Mermaid IV, the Beneteau 50 that is a former double overall winner. Third overall is the Grand Soleil 34 Just Tina on 37 points.
If there is no racing, prizegiving and festivities will commence from 1230 at the Royal Irish Yacht Club.
