Two days of sunny Dublin Bay perfection, with light easterlies on Saturday and an initially brisk westerly on Sunday, provided the notably sociable DBSC Cruisers 3 with an ideal launch pad for their new style championship, which produced an oven-ready event simply by combining the penultimate DBSC Saturday Race with the annual DMYC Kish Race on Sunday.

Almost all of the Class 3 fleet turned up for both races, and over two very different contests, there wasn't a single OCS, DNF, or DNC – it was a credit to the Class, and made for some great racing.

Saturday's DBSC race was on the cusp of being cancelled, but the RO wisely postponed for about 30 minutes and sure enough, a light breeze filled in, enough to stage a reasonable race around the bay. The course was wisely chosen so as not to interfere with the J/109 Championships which were being held in close proximity to the DBSC fleet. As the RO described it the conditions turned out to be champagne sailing, a light breeze of just 7kts and an almost flat sea. A great race ensued around 4 marks, ending at the MacLir finish line just outside the Harbour entrance.

Sunday's Kish Race was a stunning day out. Forty-one boats crossed the start line off the DBSC Hut, which is no mean feat in itself, and set off on a downwind run to the Kish Light. Conditions couldn't have been better with a 10kt apparent wind and just a slight sea, spinnakers set and many colours flying.

The Cruiser 3's were well up with the leaders and remained so all the way out to the Kish. Then there was a huge fleet split, some going northwest on a port tack up towards Howth, the remainder going southwest towards Killiney on a starboard tack, with both groups being heavily affected by a strong ebb tide, and there's still discussion as to which way paid best.

When the results were posted, there were clear winners in both IRC and ECHO. The Quarter Tonner Cartoon (Ken Lawless & Sybil McCormack) posted an impressive win on IRC on both Saturday and Sunday to take the overall prize, with the Formula 28 Starlet (Kevin Byrne) posting second overall and Maranda (Myles Keogh) coming in third. The ECHO prize was won emphatically by the vintage Beneteau First Papytoo (Frank Guilfoyle), followed by Eleint (Michal Matulka) in second with Cartoon emphasising the solidity of her performance by posting another podium place on third under ECHO.

It all made for a wonderful finale to the season with two days of cracking sailing and some great competition on the Bay. Class Captain Kevin Byrne issued a big thanks to DBSC, DMYC and Colin McMullen for all their help in staging the Championship, and especially to the skippers and crews for taking part to provide a great turnout with a solid showing of boats that augurs well for the future of Cruisers 3.

The prizes will be awarded at the Class Dinner on the 27th November in the Royal St George YC

With the spotlight on the ICRA Championship in Dublin Bay this weekend, normal Bay racing saw a fleet of 17 Flying Fifteens turn out for DBSC club racing in a stiff southeast breeze of c15 knots.

As this was the first outing after the Championship of Ireland last weekend at Strangford Lough Sailing Club, some boats were observed pre-launch attending to rig and setting modifications for the day's racing. With the cruiser fleet out in the bay and an Optimist championship in the West of the bay, the PRO Barry O'Neill set his windward-leeward course near Merrion mark in line with the twin Poolbeg chimneys. Easy to find in a Bay full of boats and conveniently advised on VHF by the DBSC flagship.

A square line saw the boats start a three-round race with some quickly opting for the right side to go towards the shore. At the weather mark, 4068 (Mulvin & Beirne) was around first followed by 4093 a brand new boat on its first Dublin Bay outing (Mathews & Poole), 4081 (Mulligan & Casey) and 3955 (Dumpleton & Hickey). On the downwind leg, some opted to gybe set with the boats going to the rights side and gybing later on the leg holding their own. With some changes in the positions of the leaders the finishers were 1st 4068 Mulvin & Beirne, 2nd Mathews & Poole & 3rd 4081 Mulligan & Casey.

For race two the PRO set a four-lap course with the committee boat moving to the end of the final beat and located in a position to shorten the tack home. The tide was now slack and about to flood so decisions on the upwind course. Again the leaders opted for the inshore course with 4057 (T Murphy & La Roux) leading 4008 (Coleman & Coleman) with 4081, 3955, 4093 & 4068 in the mix. On the downwind leg, those that opted for a gybe set on the downwind leg didn't seem to make any distance that those who opted for the late gybe. A gruelling last beat saw 4057 (T Murphy & Le Roux) get the gun followed by 3955 (Dumpleton & Hickey) & 4008 (The Coleman's). With a 1st & 4th, 4068 (Mulvin & Beirne) won the day by a point from 3955 (Dumpleton & Hickey).

The Dublin Bay Sailing Club PRO Barry O'Neill and his crew on "Freebird" and mark layers provided excellent racing on a day with much activity in the bay, and this was greatly enjoyed by Ireland's biggest one-design keelboat class.

The last Flying Fifteen race of the DBSC AIB summer series proved to be another challenging evening for the race officer Brian Mathews and his team on what was one of the warmest days of the year with very light E-NE winds. It was a good tactical race and trying to keep clear wind was the priority.

Despite a number of boats heading to the Championships of Ireland in Whiterock this weekend, there was a good turnout with 11 boats on the start line. Ken Dumpleton & Joe Hickey (Rodriguez) had the title as Neil Colin, who was level on points in second place could not make this race, but the other podium places had to be decided.

The pin end was biased, Chris Doorly & Caroline Green (Match Five) tried their luck lining up for a port start at the biased pin but didn't make it and ducked under a few transoms and headed out to sea accompanied by O'Sullivan and Sherry in clear wind as most headed left. With the easterly, there was more breeze the further out you went, and this paid off as Doorly led this group which now included Laura & Niall Coleman at the first mark.

Most headed left on the run, but on the second beat, Dumpleton showed his prowess as he made big gains by going left to move level with the Coleman's at the weather mark. This prompted Doorly to look for the wind that Dumpleton had on the beat and as a result, headed to the right on the run followed by Dumpleton as Coleman and the majority of the fleet went left on the run. This move paid dividends as they moved well clear of the fleet by the leeward mark and managed to navigate their way to the finish line for Doorly & Green to win with Dumpleton & Hickey back in second but happy that they had won the overall series. Coleman stayed in third place with Balfe fourth and Ryan fifth. Then it was the long paddle home!
