#fireball – The 44th hosting of the Frostbites by Dun Laoghaire Motor Yacht Club was brought to a close yesterday with the prize-giving for the Series taking place in the clubhouse.

Racing had been programmed for the day, but an adverse forecast, which manifested itself with a very windy seascape saw the racing cancelled by Facebook notification late in the morning and N over A flying from the clubhouse flagpole.
DMYC Commodore, Kevin Burke, opened proceedings by recording a vote of thanks on behalf of DMYC and the competitors to Olivier Proveur for the successful completion of another Series and for the time and effort he puts in to organising the Series.

Kevin also advised the audience gathered in the clubhouse that DMYC is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and indicated that there will be a variety of celebrations throughout the year. Additionally, on the weekend of 27/28 June, the club will host a celebratory regatta in tandem with Dublin Bay Sailing Club who manage the racing on Dublin Bay over the summer months. In his closing remarks, Kevin drew attention to the range in age of the Frostbite participants – from Olivier's 12-year old son, Oisin, to Louis Smyth in the Fireballs.

Olivier took over the microphone from Kevin and said how pleasing it was to see the Frostbite fleet grow again this year. Involved since 2000, when he took over from Valerie Kinnear, Olivier advised that this year the Frostbites had an entry of 103 boats in total. This year a number of changes had been implemented resulting in four separate starts. He suggested that the weather had not been as kind to them as in recent years with only 18 races completed – not 18 Sundays. Series 1 had only five races, from the first Sunday of November to the last Sunday before Christmas. He also asked the competitors to acknowledge the volunteer core of the Frostbites and proceeded to list 18 people ranging from the Race Officer, Kevin Cullen, through timekeepers, recorders, mark-layers and rescue personnel. Two people were given special mention – Dave Coleman (Fireballs) who hadn't missed a single Sunday of the Series as a rib driver and Bob Hobby who, in addition to mark-laying duties posted photographs of each Sunday's proceedings to Facebook. Photographs from the Frostbites have been viewed by 3,460 people. The closing thanks went to DMYC's boatman Richard who prepares all the equipment for each Sunday's racing and Fiona and Carlos in the clubhouse who look after everyone post-racing with soup and a bar service.

The prize-giving then took place with two sets of prizes for each class – Series 2 and the overall Series. For the Fireballs Series 2 was another close run affair for the first two boats overall. As the individual reports for the races have advised, the distance between Messrs Butler and Rumball was never very much apart from one exception that comes to mind. They seemed to be in a constant state of watching out for the other boat!

4 Frank Miller & Grattan Donnelly 14713 Dun Laoghaire Motor Yacht Club 47
5 Louise McKenna & Hermine O'Keeffe 14691 Royal St. George Yacht Club 52

In terms of the overall Frostbite title, the gap between the first two boats was a bit more pronounced, courtesy of a perfect Series 1 for Rumball & Byrne that saw them undefeated over the five-race series. And this performance is what probably set them up for the overall title.

5 Frank Miller & Grattan Donnelly 14713 DMYC 62

The 1-2-3 overall received plaques which made reference to the 50th anniversary of the DMYC.

On completion of the prize-giving, Pat Shannon and Jonathan O'Rourke of the Dublin Bay Sailing Club give a very short presentation on DBSC's plans for the summer's racing – new classes/starts, new courses, more midweek races and a plan for 18 nights of Tuesday racing and 20 Saturdays of afternoon racing. There is an undertaking to provide more races with quicker turnaround times between races. Entry fees for the DBSC have been reduced and online entry will now be accessible. DBSC gets underway on 23rd April 2015.

For the Fireball fleet, there is now a break from the on-the-water activities. A class rule change allows for the removal of 3kg of lead weight corrector form the boats and this has resulted in the Irish Class setting up a "weighing day" for the fleet on 18th April. The consequence of this activity is that boats will have to be stored under dry conditions in advance of the weigh-in. A separate notification has gone out from the committee in this regard. Immediately after this session, we have a UK Fireballer undertaking a coaching session, the following weekend, April 25/26th.

Summer regattas are scheduled for May (Skerries), June (Cushendall), July (Dunmore East), September (Lough Ree) and October (Dun Laoghaire). Interspersed with these Class events there is the Volvo Dun Laoghaire Regatta (9 – 12 July) and the Fireball Worlds (15 – 30 August, Pwllheli, Wales, with an International Week beforehand). Fireballers should also be aware of a Dinghy Week type event in Cork from 21 – 23 August.

#rssailing – Last Sunday, no one was quite sure what wind to expect with Windguru forecasting a 8-14 knots and the Atlantic charts saying otherwise. Racing got underway in the harbour where the tide was exceptionally high due to the recent ecclipse.

Race 1 got underway in a South Easterly breeze of around 12 knots. The fleet had a clean start and immediately split with Rumball, Emmet opting for the left side and Cleary going for the right side. Rumball and Emmet reached mark a good distance ahead leaving Cleary to play catch up. The racing eventually settled down with Emmet/James crossing the line first followed by the Rumball and Cleary boat respectively after the race was shortened.

The wind was beginning to drop and back whilst waiting for race 2 which was to a starboard rounding course. The line was quite biased to the pin end(now on the right) which led to a bit of a queue to round the pin.

This time, the fleet stayed more compact with the patchy wind not allowing anyone to get too far ahead.

A broken Wing-Wang line saw the Rumball boat retire. Riding on the last bit of wind on the last lap, Cleary closed the gap to Emmet. However, the last phase of the race was to be in slow motion with a nice pile-up at the out-loop leeward mark involving a few Kamikaze lasers fire their way in! Emmet/James finished first just 2 seconds clear of Cleary/Donal!

#dbsc – To a racing observer from the shore, the start of yesterday's Frostbite was very odd! At the scheduled start of 14:00, the first two classes the PY Class and the Lasers got away in proper order writes Cormac Bradley. Quite a bit later there was a start for the RS Classes but as soon as they appeared to go over the line they were all called back. The confusion and delay in the starting sequence meant that the Fireball fleet on the start line was doubled in size, going from three to seven boats, and the fleet got a competitive race in!
Initially the three boats in the start area were Barry McCartin & Conor Kinsella (15114), Noel Butler & Stephen Oram (15061) and Louise McKenna & Hermine O'Keeffe (14691). Having been at a Fireball –connection house-warming the night before I thought that the others had succumbed to the hospitality of the house-warming and decided to give the racing a miss. Because it was gone 14:20 before Kenneth Rumball & Brian Byrne (15058), Louis Smyth & Joe O'Reilly (15007), Frank Miller & Grattan Donnelly (14713) and Neil Colin & Margaret Casey (14775) joined the other three starters. It transpired in the clubhouse afterwards that the fleet emerging from the Coal Harbour end of Dun Laoghaire harbour had been stalled by the Race Committee who were considering their options for the day.
The aborted start for the RS Classes was due, it appears, to two class flags being flown, when only one was required. The nett effect was that all seven Fireballs got a race, sharing the one start.
Having observed the previous starts from shore, I imagined that the Fireballs would be fighting for the committee boat end in order to be able to go right, to a windward mark that was just to the west of the harbour mouth. So it was rather surprising to see McCartin & Kinsella halfway down the start line coming up the beat on starboard tack. The error of that approach manifested itself early on when they went behind the transom of Colin & Casey.
The one boat that did go hard right was rewarded with third place around the weather mark – Smyth & O'Reilly having gone all the way right before they took the hitch into the mark. Rumball & Butler rounded first and second and would keep each other in close company for the balance of the race. Behind Smyth came McCartin, who powered over Smyth between Marks 1 and 2. Miller led Colin and McKenna.
What had looked like a broad reach for the PY and Laser Classes between 1 and 2 was now a tight three sail reach for the Fireballs. Rumball held the spinnaker all the way to 2, Butler did an Aussie drop with about 100m to go, McCartin sailed higher managed to bear of in the tougher gusts to hold the bag all the way to 2. Determining when to gybe after 2 was a key factor in the comfort level of the leg between 2 and 3.
On the second beat the fleet all went right to varying degrees but Rumball & Butler pulled out distance on them all to leave themselves having their own race. A cluster of Fireballs rounded after them, one of whom took a 720˚ penalty turn to leave the sequence as Colin, Miller, Smyth, McCartin and McKenna. At Mark 2 McCartin gybed immediately whereas Smyth and Miller delayed with the result that McCartin took them both. However, by the next mark, McCartin had lost his gains again as the others passed him out. His day got even worse when his spinnaker wouldn't come down at Mark 4 so he retired from the race.
On the third beat the fleet was working inside the area defined by the four marks of the course as opposed to sailing on the extremities. By this stage they were each covering the other with the comfort of knowing that the chasing pack were too far back to threaten. At the end of this third lap however, Rumball fell foul of other boats, at Mark 4 and again when he needed to avoid a capsized 29er. The nett effect was that at the fourth weather mark, Butler & Oram had assumed the lead which they held onto until the finish. Colin led the chasing pack home, followed by Miller, Smyth & McKenna.

DMYC Frostbites – Series 2 R1 R2 R3 R4 R5 R6 R7 Tot Nett
Noel Butler & Stephen Oram 15061 NYC/DMYC 2 3 1 2 3 2 1 14 11
Kenneth Rumball & Brian Byrne 15058 INSC 9 1 3 3 2 4 2 24 15
Barry McCartin & Conor Kinsella 15114 RStGYC 1 4 2 14 1 1 9 32 18

These provisional results (by me) are based on the idea of a single discard for Series 2.
After a balmy but very breezy Saturday here in Dun Laoghaire, the fleet enjoyed more modest temperatures of 8˚ with wind out of the NW (313˚) at 12.5 knots with a highest recorded gust of 21 knots, according to the weather station in the harbour.

#dbsc – Strong westerly winds gusting to 40 knots put paid to both the DBSC Spring Chicken handicap keelboat series and the DMYC dinghy frostbites on Dublin bay today.
The cruiser event was abandoned just before its first gun this morning. It is the second week running that strong winds have forced cancellation. The plan now, say organisers, is to run an extra race on March 22nd with no race on the 15th due to St. Patrick's weekend.

#dbsc – Although Kinsale's natural harbour may have provided the necessary protection for the penultimate round of the south coast town's Frostbite series yesterday, there was no such shelter from the winds on the east coast with both of Sunday's Dublin Bay sailing fixures cancelled. DBSC's cruiser Spring Chicken organisers were forced to cancel in the morning and the DMYC dinghy frostbite series followed suit yesterday afternoon as gusts hit 40–knots off Dun Laoghaire harbour.

#pyfleet – The PY fleet turned out in good numbers for yesterday's DMYC frostbite series and despite the weather had a great day's racing after all writes Hugh Sheehy. Cold water temperatures and winds gusting from 10 knots to 28 knots led to some conservative sailing, but the racing was still pretty full on.

At the end the result continued the recent strong run by the Finns, with Richard Tate leading the way home from Long and Hamilton in the IDRA14s.

Tate started with the main group down at the pin while Des Fortune's Finn timed a gust right and got a big right shift off the boat end right at the gun. Fortune's boat was clearly ahead at the first mark with Tate and Long chasing hard back in from the left. It was PUFFY under the weather mark.

Careful sailing was the order of business down the run with booms not let too far out and some spinnakers not-flying. Tate and Fortune's Finns started to pull clear on the 2nd beat before Fortune's boat retired leaving Tate to sail out to victory. A nice win, although not by a big margin, with Long only 20 seconds behind on corrected time. And although Hamilton was a full two minutes further back he only had ten seconds over Tom Murphy in the K1.

The most notable result was the one second difference between Devaney and Lordan in 5th and 6th. Tight times!

PY and Laser fleets each had 13 boats on the water, with the RS and Fireball fleets disappointed to see only 5 boats in each class. But it was a good day.

A good day! And a good day to have a good wetsuit too!

#frostbites – Only five Fireballs sailed the single race in today's offering from the DMYC's Frostbite organisers. Messrs, McCartin, Butler, Rumball, Clancy, their respective crews and Louise McKenna and crew made up the starters writes Cormac Bradley. 

The weather station adjacent the HSS Terminal and the Windfinder App were in agreement about some of the conditions – the weather station was recording a wind direction of 172˚, a base wind strength of 10.8 knots and a recorded gust of 21.7 knots, air temperature was a balmy (for February) 8.9˚. Windfinder predicted the direction as southerly, with a wind strength that would vary from 18 – 20 knots with gusts of 22 – 26 knots between 12 noon and 15:00.

The gusts were certainly there giving the fleet some interesting spinnaker legs, particularly on the top and bottom legs of the trapezoid course which was set in the middle and western half of Dun Laoghaire harbour – a weather mark just of the end of the HSS Ferry Gantry, No. 2 just inside the end of the East Pier, No. 3 in the middle of the harbour mouth and No. 4 off what I would refer to as the "blockhouse" on the West Pier.

"Cats paws" of harder wind were blowing across the course all afternoon and these provided some fun on the off-wind legs.

The fight at the start was to secure the slot beside the committee boat – four boats went for this as Louise was slightly delayed on her way out to the start. Ultimately, it was won by Rumball and Byrne (15058), but not before McCartin and Kinsella came in too early (from my position) and had to "bale out". The previous starts (PY Class, Lasers, RS 200 & 400s) suggested that the way to go was left, but McCartin & Kinsella, taking an early hitch to the right, subsequently crossed the other three on starboard tack and never looked back, leading from this initial crossing all the way to the finish. Butler & Oram (15061), Clancy & Clancy (15113) and Rumball & Byrne (15058) were in close company, until Rumball/Byrne capsized in a tack and fell out the back of the train. This "snookered" their race for though they got close enough to Clancy/Clancy to have the latter watching them carefully, they never recovered, place-wise, from their swim.

After the first weather mark there were no place changes but the relative fortunes of the boats did seem to change. At the end of the first lap McCartin & Kinsella looked very comfortable. Butler & Oram tried different things to close the gap but at each subsequent weather mark, bar the last, McCartin's lead was between 20 and 30 seconds. Only on the last beat was there a sense that Butler & Oram had dramatically closed on the leaders but at this stage McCartin & Kinsella were keeping a loose cover on them anyway. And Butler & Oram got caught up in traffic at this last weather mark to allow McCartin & Kinsella away again.

Earlier in the race it had seemed that Butler & Oram were resigned to not catching the leaders (and I realise how disrespectful that might seem) but one almost got the sense that they were covering the rest of the fleet, rather than trying to catch McCartin.

Though the weather station was recording a wind direction of 174˚, as I left my observation position, a two-degree variation from when I arrived, on the water the vagaries of the wind translated to tight reaches becoming broader reaches on the top leg of the trapezoid and decisions about two sailing or three sailing the bottom leg of the trapezoid.

#rssailing – Sunday's RS dinghy DMYC frostbites race felt like the first day spring with clear skies and a gentle force 3 breeze to get us started off which steadily increased as the day went on.

Race one again saw some some congestion on the committee boat end of the start line. However, Cleary/O'Brien combination managed to avoid this and arrived at the windward mark first with the help of a left hand shift. They were closely followed by the Ryan brothers and the Rumball boat. The positions remained the same for the rest of the lap despite traffic from the other fleets. On the next beat, the Ryan brothers and the Rumball boat went right more to the better breeze towards the harbour mouth which saw them overtake Cleary/O'Brien. The Ryan brothers then sailed off into the distance leaving the Rumball boat and Cleary/O'Brien to scrap it out. The Ryan brothers took line honors followed by the Rumball boat and then Cleary/O'Brien.

Race 2, saw the breeze begin to rise quite nicely to the stage where the RS's were planing on the spreader leg. Brian O'Hare and Alice Brennan got off to a good start leading the fleet to the first windward. The Ryan brothers and the Rumball boat eventually got past everyone and began their own match race at the front. The Ryan brothers again finished first and were closely follow by the Rumball boat and followed by Cleary/O'Brien.

Next week promises to be an even better outing with the long range forecast predicting a southerly force 4 and a tropical 9 degrees celsius.

Weekly Mug went to Clodagh Hinkson & Helen O'Beirne in the rs 200 for race 1 and Brian O'Hare & Alice Brennan for race 2.

Thanks to Sean Cleary for this week's report.

#dmycfrostbites – In the presence of an unusual large high pressure over Ireland, the Fireball frostbites were greeted by a lovely 10-15kt breeze from the west, cool as it was, the warmth of the sunshine kept sailors moving for races 11 and 12 of the DMYC Frostbite series. The race committee laid a Trapezoid course inside the Harbour walls with a windward mark laid well away from the West Pier giving clear breeze all the way from the start line to the mark. With a congested start line due to a highly favoured committee boat all boats got away cleanly. Initially most of the fleet kept on starboard tack out toward the middle of the harbour, Noel Butler and Stephen Oram 15061 peeled off first to the right hand side with Kenneth Rumball and Ed Butler following suit leaving the Clancy brothers 15113 to head out to the left of the beat.

At the top mark the Clancy brothers came out on top followed by Rumball/Butler... The two boats played cat and mouse with Rumball/Butler overtaking on the next beat and holding on to their lead to take the win. A bit further back there was great racing throughout the fleet. Alistair Court and crew Gordon snapped at the leaders heels and narrowly missed third place in not one but both races. Neil Colin/Margaret Casey diced with Frank Miller/James Murphy and Louis Smyth/Glenn Fischer. Colin's light air credentials paid dividends in race one when he went hard right against many odds and came out ahead. Most of the fleet favoured working their way towards the left hand layline where a tad more pressure and a lift to the windward mark delivered rewards. Further back Mary Chambers and Brenda McGuire tussled with Louise McKenna sailing with Edward Coyne. The latter, and his family, deserves a medal for his epic journey from Youghal to make the start, with dense fog for most of the journey adding a distinct frisson of uncertainty all the way to Dun Laoghaire.

With the days getting longer, there was time for a second race, in very welcome increased pressure with full trapezing on the beats. A congested committee boat end saw Rumball/Butler and Butler/Oram getting away cleanly with a disagreement between the Clancy brothers and Colin/Casey at the committee boat. Rumball/Butler managed to tack clear of Butler/Oram to round the weather mark first and hold the lead to the finish of the three lap course. Not a huge amount of change further back though Miller/Murphy and Smyth/Fischer managed to squeeze ahead of Colin/Casey with Court/Syne having to settle again for a leather medal 4th.

In summary this was the kind of sailing day to gladden the heart, especially for February and the prospect of longer days ahead should surely entice out any remaining stragglers.

#fireball – Nine Fireballs enjoyed two races yesterday in Dun Laoghaire Harbour in deceptive conditions. It was a blue sky day but the air temperature was down to just less than 5˚ and with a cold breeze blowing the chill factor would have dropped that further writes Cormac Bradley.

The weather station adjacent to my vantage point recorded a base wind strength of just over 10 knots but the highest gust of the day was 18.2 knots, air temperature was 4.7˚ and wind was recorded at 316 - 320˚ - WNW.

Again the course was a trapezoid, with a weather mark close to the starter's hut on the west pier and Marks 2 and 3 sitting either side of the HSS gantry, so much so that the gantry had to be negotiated, i.e. you couldn't sail a straight line between the two marks. Mark 4 was towards the weather station on the east pier.

The fleet hogged the committee boat end on the first start, all on starboard tack, but the peel-off to the right-hand side was initiated quite early by Louise McKenna & Hermine O'Keeffe (14691), followed by Louis Smyth & Glen Fisher (15007). In contrast, Frank Miller & Joe O'Reilly (14713) worked the LHS and it paid dividends as they rounded the weather mark in first place. However, close on their tales were the Clancy brothers Conor and James (15113). A flawless hoist by the brothers saw them surge into the lead, a position they never relinquished! In contrast Miller & 'Reilly went swimming and the complicated capsize, with spinnaker, took them out of the race altogether. The leg from 1 to 2 was quite tight and successfully negotiating this leg was key to race success. Behind the first two Noel Butler & Stephen Oram (15061), Kenneth Rumball & Brian Byrne (15058), Alistair Court & Gordon Syme (14706) and Neil Colin & Margaret Casey (14775) were in close company.

The leg from 2 to 3 required two gybes, either immediately at the mark, or delayed when sailing past the gantry for the HSS was impossible. The bottom reach was already quite tight and as the afternoon progressed, it would get even tighter wit even the top boats reduced to sailing it with two sails.

For the second beat the fleet went right with Team Clancy in a very comfortable position. At the 2nd weather mark the order was Clancy, Butler, Court, Rumball, Barry McCartin & Conor Kinsella (15114), Smyth, McKenna & Colin.

For the third beat the fleet worked the middle and left of the course with McCartin and Court out on the LHS. As Miller had proven on the first beat, this was advantageous and McCartin rounded the last weather mark in 4th, behind Clancy, Butler & Rumball. 1 to 2 was now becoming a judgement call – spinnaker or not and Court in particular sailed the leg conservatively at no cost to his place in the pecking order. His 5th place earned him the Frostbite Mugs.

For the second race the committee boat was again the favoured end but this time there was a more distinct split in the fleet with four boats going right at the first available opportunity. McKenna, Miller, McCartin, Smyth & Butler worked the left hand side of the course and this paid dividends for McCartin and Butler who rounded the top mark in first and second. Again, the hoist was critical and Butler & Oram won this manoeuvre, but McCartin & Kinsella, sailing that bit higher, powered over the top of them to take the lead. Rumball & Byrne rounded ahead of Team Clancy, followed by Colin & Casey, McKenna & O'Keeffe, Smyth & Fisher, Court & Syme and Miller & O'Reilly.

Almost all the Fireballs gybed immediately at Mark 2 before a second gybe was required to get back to Mark 3 where a third gybe was required. For the first lap the top boats flew spinnakers along the bottom of the course but Aussie drops were being utilised before mark 4 was reached.

For the second beat the top three went right but Clancy worked some shifts to round the second weather mark in third place ahead of Rumball. This gave a revised order of McCartin, Butler, Clancy, Rumball, Colin, Smyth, Miller and McKenna. After a capsize on 2- 3 on the previous lap, Court & Syme retired. The legs from 1- 2 and from 2- 3 were manageable but care had to be exercised, particularly when gusts came in over the backs of the crews on 1 – 2. Leg 2 - 3 was all about timing the gybe correctly and 3 – 4 was now a high wire two sail reach.

On what was to be the last beat, McCartin and Clancy worked the left hand side while Butler and Rumball worked the middle and right. A combination of good boat speed and a more favourable angle to the weather mark on the port layline meant that McCartin was able to hold onto his lead. Clancy slotted into fourth behind the other two, with Butler ahead of Rumball. However, before the finish, Rumball would pass out Butler.

Colin & Casey were holding off Smyth & Fisher who by virtue of this 6th place were in line to take the second set of Frostbite Mugs and so it evolved.
