Too Much Wind for Route Des Princes Inshore Racing on Dublin Bay

23rd June 2013
Too Much Wind for Route Des Princes Inshore Racing on Dublin Bay

#RDP13 – In a further set back for the Route Des Princes stop over in Dun Laoghaire, too much wind on Dublin Bay today has led to the cancellation of the second and final day of inshore racing off Dun Laoghaire's East pier.  The decision was posted by organisers at 11am today.

Yesterday, the first of six scheduled races was abandoned only minutes after the start when one of nine competing trimarans, leg three winner Spindrift, capsized.

Other sailing in the bay for the DBSC SB20 class has also been scrubbed as westerly winds reach 30 knots. Across the Bay in Howth, Squib east coast racing has also been abandoned.
