DMYC Dinghy Frostbite Series Cancelled for a Second Week

28th January 2024

Dun Laoghaire's Viking Marine-sponsored DMYC Dinghy Frostbite Series has been cancelled for a second week due to strong winds on Dublin Bay.

"The Dublin Bay Buoy was showing 31 knots gusting 39 when we called it, and the forecast was high teens gusting in the thirties from S/SSW - not a great direction for steady winds", Race Officer Cormac Bradley told Afloat.

Separately, a small fleet of Laser 4.7s and six rigs who ventured out into the harbour this morning were hard-pressed in their heavy weather training session.

DMYC Racing continues next Sunday afternoon. See live Dublin Bay webcam here.
