Spring Chicken Series - Dublin Bay - Week 5
'Mighty Stuff' - the smallest boat in the fleet has won Race 5 in The Spring Chicken Series on Dublin Bay. The popular Squib shared the podium with Eleint (Trapper 300) and Thinksys (Hanse 342).
PRO Henry Leonard and the team on MacLir set a challenging Z course in perfect conditions and 'Dubious' (First 28) came flying off off the start line to lead the 36 boat fleet at the first weather mark.
There was a very close battle between 'Lady A' and 'De ja vu' for line honours, but some last mark jostling let the J109 'Joker' overtake both boats on the final reaching leg to be first boat home.
Congrats to Howard Knott who won this weeks Boatshed Umbrella, presented in the NYC after racing.
