124 Dublin Bay Sailing Club (DBSC) boats enjoyed a light breeze on the bay for the penultimate Thursday evening race of the AIB sponsored Summer Series.

There was a full turnout in the Beneteau 31.7 and Ruffian 23 classes.

Racing was completed with many boats returning to harbour before a sea fog covered much of the southern shore of the bay.

Provisional Series results for Thursdays now reveals that the following yachts in 12 classes cannot be caught in the final race (with the proviso that corrections or protests may alter this analysis):

  • Cruiser 1 IRC and J/109: White Mischief
  • 31.7 ECHO: Bluefin II

  • SB20: Ted
  • Sportsboat VPRS: Jester
  • Dragon: Sir Ossis o the River
  • Ruffian 23: Shannagh

In several classes, the 2nd placed boat will have to win the last race to have any chance of winning the series.

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.
