Dublin Bay Sailing Club's popular Turkey Shoot Series got off to a breezy start on Dublin Bay this morning for an all–star cast of sailing cruisers that includes last year's winner, the triple ICRA Champion Joker II (John Maybury) and the Dun Laoghaire to Dingle winner Rockabill VI (Paul O'Higgins) both of the Royal Irish Yacht Club.

Open to all, the 60–plus boat fleet has also attracted the INSS's Kenny Rumball, this year in an SB20, with several 1720 sportsboats also racing.

The series of seven races is held on Sunday mornings from 5th November to 17th December. An entry fee of €70.00 for the series includes temporary membership of DBSC and the Royal Irish Yacht Club. 

Last year the series was dominated by J109s who took the top three places overall. 

In addition to the title sponsor, DBSC's Fintan Cairns has also secured continued support from weekly sponsors North Sails and UK Sailmakers Ireland.

See Afloat.ie's photo gallery from the opening race below. Results update to follow.
