After taking the three top prizes in last year's Rathfarnham Ford Turkey Shoot Series, only the presence of Paul O'Higgins's JPK 10.80 in second, breaks up four J109s in the top five of this year's DBSC 46–boat fleet after the first race last Sunday.

Royal Irish's Richard Goodbody in White Mischief leads from clubmate O'Higgins in Rockabill VI with places three to five overall now taken by the J109s Chimaera, Dear Prudence and Jalapeno.
