ICRA Boat of the Year Joker II skippered by John Maybury leads three Royal Irish club mates Beneteau 34.7 Black Velvet (3471) Leslie Parnell and J109 sisterships Indecision (Declan Hayes, Ronan Moloney, & Patrick Halpenny) and Jump the Gun (John M. Kelly & Michael Monaghan) into a Scotsman’s Bay mark in Sunday’s DBSC Spring Chicken Series race.

Just crowned ICRA Boat of the Year Joker II was back on the water this morning in a buoyant DBSC Spring Chicken fleet that enjoyed perfect 10–15 knot northwesterly winds after a number of cancellations over the past three weekends. 

The third race of the Rathfarnham Ford sponsored series for keelboats involved a fetch to the first turning mark in Scotsman's Bay and a Spinnaker reach past Sandycove point on Dublin Bay.

Joker II from the Royal Irish Yacht Club was second among a group of J109 sisterships into the third mark on the course. Latest results will be posted later this week.

    This was the third mark in the race and the headline is slightly misleading as the Race winner J109 Dear Prudence was leading the race at this point but was too far ahead to be in this photo !
