Tim and Richard Goodbody's potent J109 White Mischief leads after the first race of seven in the DBSC Turkey Shoot on Dublin Bay last Sunday.

A bumper turnout of 61 boats from 74–entries received to date is a shot in the arm for sailing in the capital's waters this winter.

A light air start to the series saw the Royal Irish Yacht Club entry come in ahead of clubmate Andrew Alego's Juggerknot, the current J109 National Champion.

Goodbody's White Mischief was helmed by Maurice O'Connell of North Sails Ireland.

Third overall is another RIYC boat, Leslie Parnell's Beneteau 34.7 Black Velvet. 

The fleet includes a great turnout of 1720 sportsboats from across the Dun Laoghaire waterfront and includes a new Grand Soleil model Justina that finished 25th in her debut race.
