16 DBSC Turkey Shoots racers were given estimated times for this fifth race as the wind died before the finish. 16 DBSC Turkey Shoots racers were given estimated times for this fifth race as the wind died before the finish.

Yesterday's penultimate DBSC Turkey Shoot race was completed but only after Race Officers chased the wind across Dublin Bay.

After a wait for wind yesterday morning the DBSC flagship was moved from the outfall buoy off Dun Laoghaire's West Pier to set a new course in towards the city where winds appeared more solid.

The 74-boat Rathfarnham Ford fleet got underway in a light but steady northwesterly. Organisers had it all to do to get the big turnout racing and resorted to a black flag to get some unruly J109s off the line.

In the end, 16 entries were given estimated times for this fifth race as the wind died before the finish. Results to follow on Afloat.ie

The final race takes place next Sunday
