After two races of the DBSC Turkey Shoot Series, it is Dublin Bay newcomer 'Hot Cookie' that that leads the 72–boat fleet in the pre-Christmas seven–race fixture sponsored by Citroen.

The John O'Gorman skippered Sunfast 3600, that will collect the best new boat performance at the DBSC Summer prizegiving this Friday evening, has a one-point lead over the Royal Irish Yacht Club J/109, Jump the Gun. Third is 2017 Turkey Shoot winner, the Beneteau 50 Mermaid IV.

Last Sunday's turnout incorporated an on the water Commemoration for DBSC members killed in World War One and it was a bumper affair. The later start to facilitate Armistice Day meant both the in–harbour DMYC Frostbites, with an estimated 91 dinghies competing, plus the strong Turkey Shoot Cruisers out in the Bay produced a combined sailing fleet to rival any Summer Saturday.
