The first round of the Dublin Team Racing League was sailed in blustery conditions yesterday in the relative shelter of Dun Laoghaire Harbour's Carlisle Pier where up to 76 short, sharp races were scheduled.

Dublin University Sailing Club hosted the first of the four League events with the goal to grow team racing in the Leinster region.

The League built on last month's Elmo Cup momentum at the Royal St. George Yacht Club and bridges the gap to college team racing with young sailors ranging from secondary school to university students participating.

Although the league will be held in Dublin, anyone from around the country is welcome to enter a team regardless of age or ability.
