DBSC Spring Chicken Sailing Series Cancelled Due to Sea State

A sea state post Storm Emma has been judged to be not suitable for sailing and led to the cancellation of tomorrow's popular Dublin Bay Sailing Club Spring Chicken Series. 

Easterly winds, that brought wild conditions to many Dublin Bay harbours yesterday, are also forecast to persist moderate to fresh tomorrow and not due to drop until later on Sunday.

The 32– keelboat fleet were scheduled to race from 10am from the National Yacht Club

As a further consideration, organiser Fintan Cairns says that 'with driving most likely hazardous tomorrow morning for a lot of people, getting to Dun Laoghaire could be a problem'. 

'Last but not least, we do not want to end up as frozen Spring Chickens!', Cairns added.
