Two 1720s are being chased by an SB20 for the overall lead aftter the first race of the Rathfarnham Ford DBSC Spring Chicken Series on Dublin Bay on Sunday.  

1720 Optique leads sistership Wolfe with Kenny Rumball's SB20 in third place in the 36–boat fleet. Full results are downloadable below. 

The dominance of the sportsboats maybe no surprise given nearly a third of the fleet is made up of the Royal Cork inspired sportsboat class.

Series organiser Fintan Cairns is predicting some 'interesting handicap revisions' next Sunday after the short first race and the vagaries of the wind.
