Royal Irish J109 White Mischief has regained the overall lead of the DBSC Turkey Shoot Series on Dublin Bay even after a lowly 21st place scored in the third race last Sunday morning.

The Tim and Richard Goodbody skippered leader now has a four-point margin over two yachts that are tied for second place, the J97 Windjammer (Lindsay Casey) and the 1720 Ricochet skippered by Kenny Rumball.

The RIYC father and son duo took an early lead in the series after race one before losing it in a high turnout race two to the 1720 sportsboat, Wolfe.

The 65-boat fleet had another light to medium air race last Sunday over a course south of Dun Laoghaire Harbour to Dalkey Island as captured so well in this INSS video.

Racing in the seven-race series sponsored by Citroen South continues this Sunday.

Results are downloadable below.

Despite sizeable changes in the start sequence after the first race there are no changes this week.

Changes to handicaps and the start sequences are downloadable below.

The 1720 sportsboat Wolfe was the winner of the second race of the DBSC Turkey Shoot on Dublin Bay. 

Last Sunday's second race may have had little in the way of wind but that was more than made up for by a fantastic turnout of 65 from 66 entries of mixed sailing cruisers.

Overall, the seven-race Citroen South sponsored series is now led by two 1720s Ricochet and Merlin respectively. Third is the Trapper Eleint.

Racing continues next Sunday.

Full results downloadable below.

The Shanahan family's J109 Ruth was the overall winner of the DBSC Turkey Shoot sponsored by Citroen South Dublin yesterday.

All the ingredients for a spicy winter series finale were dished up on the capital’s water for the concluding race with ten boats in the running for the overall honours. 

After a full-on seven race series for the 77–boat fleet, the National Yacht Club entry outwitted clubmate and sistership Jalapeno (Paul Barrington) to take the overall lead after yesterday's final race.

But under the 'novel' rules of the series, it was second place Sean O'Regan's vintage Dehler 31 that walked away with the top prizes at the RIYC because, according to DBSC Turkey Shoot tradition, 'you have to be there to collect' at the prizegiving festivities.

Third overall was the 1720 sportsboat, Zelus.

The 2018 series was the first complete series in many editions of the 16-year-old event when the record winter fleet set sail from Dun Laoghaire Harbour. The seven races produced seven different overall leaders as the series progressed.

Overall results and the final race results are published below
