Race night no 3 took place in Sandycove. Light southerly winds and comfortable tempertures provided the perfect set up for a good nights racing, .......until the Yachts arrived and took over the bay!!!!!

A messy start finally settled and we raced 2 races, 4km and 2km. David Mangan was on fire leading out the Mens Race as was Sarah Gannon on her isup. Michaella won the Ladies Race. John Stapleton the crossover, and Keith Gorman the isup race.

Food and drink was enjoyed afterwards at the 40ft. Looking forward to next weeks race, hope the conditions are as nice.

Great conditions for our 4th Race Night. Light onshores and a decent swell running made conditions a great challenge. Definitly our most difficult race so far this series.

Dave Mangan took home the mens race, Nicola Jensen the ladies race, Keith Gorman the 12,6 isup and John Stapleton was on fire in the crossover, taking the win and the ONLY person to remain dry all night!!

Looking forward to next week.

Some more cracking racing last night in Sandycove. Moderate onshores made for interesting racing with a lovely downwind leg to play around with.

The night was a 3 race format. A windy 3km, followed by a 750 sprint around 4 buoys, and finishing with another crack at the 3 km course.

Dave Mangan, Michaella, John Stapleton and Keith Gorman won their respective categeries with ease. Its great to see all paddling with much more confidence and speed, all set for the Dublin Bay SUP Classic / Battle for the Bay in 1 weeks time.
