DMYC Dinghy Frostbite Series Cancelled for Third Week in a Row at Dun Laoghaire Harbour

4th February 2024

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

"Winds were forecast at 17/18 knots but gusting to 32 knots from a SSW direction", Race Officer Cormac Bradley told Afloat.

The Flying Fifteen winter training crews did not test the waters either, but ten Oppies were out in the harbour. It looked manageable until the wind started whistling through the rigging.

The DBSC Spring Chicken Series for mixed cruisers raced outside the harbour on Sunday morning.

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

Meanwhile, in Australia, DMYC Dinghy Frostbite Series regular Sean Craig leads the ILCA 6 Masters World Championship, Australia, as Afloat reports here
