#dbscturkeyshoot – The sailor at the centre of Sunday's air-sea rescue drama on Dublin Bay has been released from hospital. Rescue services who responded to the emergency suspected a spinal injury to a crew member after they were called to the dismasted yacht Elandra, a competitor in the Rathfarnham Ford Sponsored DBSC Turkey Shoot series.
Race organisers said last night no spinal or major injuries were sustained. Happily, the injured male sailor, who was kept in hospital overnight only for observation, is said to be making a good recovery.
The organisers have thanked rescue services including the Coast Guard and the RNLI.
