It looks like a change of pace for this Sunday's race. After two heavy air races (with northwest winds over 30 knots) forecasts show that winds will be much lighter this weekend. 'We should see a lot more boats out', says race organiser Fintan Cairns

In a second week of strong winds and exhilarating sailing, leading J109 yachts competing in the Rathfarnham Ford sponsored DBSC Turkey Shoot recorded speeds of 15–knots today.

After a short upwind leg and a gybe at the outfall mark off the West Pier, a reduced fleet, due to the conditions, set a course downwind to the Muglins Rock off Dalkey Island in the southern end of Dublin Bay.

There were very few spinnakers flown in the early stages of the long downwnd leg as gusts of 32–knots from the north-west hit the mixed cruiser and sportsboat fleet that includes 1720s and a sole SB20.

Today was the second in a series of seven races is held on Sunday mornings from 5th November to 17th December. An entry fee of €70.00 for the series includes temporary membership of DBSC and the Royal Irish Yacht Club. 

Last year the series was dominated by J109s who took the top three places overall. This year the Js have a grip of the lead again with the JPK 10.80 Rockabill (that did not sail today) also in the frame after race one.

'I was tactician last week on Rockabill VI and tactician today on Joker II this week. We got Joker II up to 15.8 knots on the windy run to Muglins', Prof told Afloat.ie

After taking the three top prizes in last year's Rathfarnham Ford Turkey Shoot Series, only the presence of Paul O'Higgins's JPK 10.80 in second, breaks up four J109s in the top five of this year's DBSC 46–boat fleet after the first race last Sunday.

Royal Irish's Richard Goodbody in White Mischief leads from clubmate O'Higgins in Rockabill VI with places three to five overall now taken by the J109s Chimaera, Dear Prudence and Jalapeno.

Yesterday's penultimate DBSC Turkey Shoot race was completed but only after Race Officers chased the wind across Dublin Bay.

After a wait for wind yesterday morning the DBSC flagship was moved from the outfall buoy off Dun Laoghaire's West Pier to set a new course in towards the city where winds appeared more solid.

The 74-boat Rathfarnham Ford fleet got underway in a light but steady northwesterly. Organisers had it all to do to get the big turnout racing and resorted to a black flag to get some unruly J109s off the line.

In the end, 16 entries were given estimated times for this fifth race as the wind died before the finish. Results to follow on Afloat.ie

The final race takes place next Sunday
