Despite an intent to start a race, Mother Nature got the better of today’s Viking Marine DMYC Dinghy Frostbites at Dun Laoghaire Harbour. Initially, the race area reconnaissance suggested a breeze in the order of 16.5 knots with gusts marginally in excess of that.

However, in the build-up to the start time the committee boat recorded a consistent 23-knots which was sufficient cause to cancel racing.

Three Fireballs, a collection of ILCAs, a GP14 and a few Aeros decided to go out and play for a while and DMYC’s RIBs facilitated that for a short period.

Racing continues next Sunday.
