Mermaid IV, a Beneteau 50, one of the biggest yachts in the 46–boat Rathfarnham Ford DBSC Turkey Shoot has moved into the overall lead of the series after four races sailed and one discard applied. 

News of the Modified ECHO gain for the fifty–footer came with last night's publication of the overall hanidcap results that shows Mermaid IV on 27 points and a tie for second place at the popular all–in cruiser–racer series.

The event has 73 registered entries this year with a 59–boat turnout last Sunday.

A Beneteau 31.7, Camira and one time overall leader Dear Prudence, a J109 type, share second place on 34 points.

Race five starts on Sunday morning. There are three races left to sail with the final round of the series due on December 17th.
