Royal Irish Yacht Club J109 White Mischief (Richard and Tim Goodbody) beat Jalapeno (Paul Barrington) and Dear Prudence (Jay Bourke) in a windy DBSC J109 race on Dublin Bay last night.

The sister ships were beaten overall in IRC One by rival XP34 Bon Exemple. The Goodbody's took second in IRC with Andrew Algeo's J99, Juggerknot 2, third.

Dublin Bay J109 interests are being well represented on the South Coast this week where DBSC regular Something Else (John and Brian Hall) of the National Yacht Club lying second after four races sailed at the Sovereign's Cup in Kinsale.

104 boats turned out across all DBSC classes for the breezy Thursday night race.

In the one-design divisions, the big Flying Fifteen fleet was won by Rodriguez. FFuZZy was second with Perfect Ten third.

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 Jonathan Nicholson of the Royal St. George 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 a 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.
