DBSC J109s Strut Their Stuff on Dublin Bay

DBSC J109s Strut Their Stuff on Dublin Bay

J109s were to the fore in Cruisers One sailing this afternoon as westerly winds of six knots but gusting up to double that speed – and shifting by 30 degrees – made for plenty of place changes for the Dublin Bay Sailing Club fleet. John Maybury's Joker, a J109, took a class one win from sistership Something Else sailed by John Hall of the National YC.

 

No results have been published for Cruisers Zero but on the water George Sisk's Wow looked to be in control.

 

The one design classes were reduced because of the Royal Alfred's staging of its Baily Bowl competition but Glencree (J.Bligh/H.Roche) was the winner of the Glens first race and Glenluce (D & R O'Connor) the winner of the second. Full results below.

Dublin Bay Sailing Club (DBSC) is one of Europe's biggest yacht racing clubs. It has almost sixteen hundred elected members. It presents more than 100 perpetual trophies each season some dating back to 1884. It provides weekly racing for upwards of 360 yachts, ranging from ocean-going forty footers to small dinghies for juniors.

Undaunted by austerity and encircling gloom, Dublin Bay Sailing Club (DBSC), supported by an institutional memory of one hundred and twenty nine years of racing and having survived two world wars, a civil war and not to mention the nineteen thirties depression, it continues to present its racing programme year after year as a cherished Dublin sporting institution.

The DBSC formula that, over the years, has worked very well for Dun Laoghaire sailors. As ever DBSC start racing at the end of April and finish at the end of September. The current commodore is Chris Moore of the National Yacht Club.

The character of racing remains broadly the same in recent times, with starts and finishes at Club's two committee boats, one of them DBSC's new flagship, the Freebird. The latter will also service dinghy racing on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Having more in the way of creature comfort than the John T. Biggs, it has enabled the dinghy sub-committee to attract regular team to manage its races, very much as happened in the case of MacLir and more recently with the Spirit of the Irish. The expectation is that this will raise the quality of dinghy race management, which, operating as it did on a class quota system, had tended to suffer from a lack of continuity.
