An adverse weather forecast cancelled the third round of the Viking Marine-sponsored DMYC Dinghy Frostbites Series at Dun Laoghaire Harbour on Sunday afternoon. 

The keelboats raced to Dalkey Island on Dublin Bay on Sunday morning in the third race of the DBSC Turkey Shoot in ideal conditions, but even then, some very strong gusts would have caused problems for the centreboarders.

Racing continues next Sunday, weather permitting.
