The burgee can be seen on the club website at
http://iol.ie/~dbscsec/, where it is shown
as a white pennant with a broad red St. Patrick's style cross and an anchor
(dark blue or black) at the centre.

The Dublin Bay Sailing Club, Ireland – founded in 1884 - is, according to
this quote from the ‘About Us’ section of the club’s website:
“the largest yacht-racing organisation on the Irish east coast. With fifteen hundred members, the Club provides regular weekly racing for upwards of 380 yachts, ranging from ocean-going forty footers to small dinghies for juniors. The Club operates from Dun Laoghaire, a major marine recreational centre and ferry port six miles to the south of Dublin. The members are drawn for the most part from the four local yacht clubs and Dun Laoghaire Marina...”
Special mention deserves the locally popular wooden yacht, the Mermaid: http://dbsc.org/index.php?/about/history_parts/mermaids
Image above is taken from the ‘Gallery’ (upper menu), Prize Giving 2009 album, last but one photo. The burgee is white with a broad red saltire bearing at its centre a black anchor, flukes towards the lower hoist – the St Patrick’s or Fitzgerald cross comes to mind.

Dublin Bay Sailing Club, Ireland
" . . . on Saturday, 19th. July  . . . the first race of the organization called at first the Sailing Boat Club, but in a year or two became the Dublin Bay Sailing club."
Quote: Dublin Bay Sailing Club website
" . . . after a Royal Alfred Yacht Club EGM last night [1 March 2016] voted in favour of the motion 'that the Royal Alfred Yacht Club be incorporated into Dublin Bay Sailing Club'."
