This Sunday sees the first of a series of seven races on Dublin Bay for the 2019 DBSC Turkey Shoot Series. 

The popular winter fixture has again attracted up to 70 boats for the short sharp races and this year that runs from 3rd November to 15th December with First Gun each Sunday at 10.10 hrs.

As Afloat previously reported here, racing is under modified ECHO. Cruisers, cruising boats, one-designs and boats that do not normally race combine for the short sharp racing.

The entry fee is €70 and includes temporary membership of DBSC and the Royal Irish Yacht Club who are hosting the series.

Sailing Instructions are downloadable below.

Organiser Fintan Cairns, who won a Sailor of the Year Award for the success of the go-ahead series last January, put tongue in cheek yesterday to thank Rugby World Cup organisers in Japan for their decision to hold the RWC Final on Saturday morning to avoid clashing with the Citroen South Turkey Shoot!

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
