#greystones – Ireland's newest marina at Greystones harbour has welcomed in two Round Ireland race competitors for Saturday's nearby race start from Wicklow harbour. As previously reported on Afloat.ie the new 200–berth marina will be home to a chartered Volvo 70 Monster and a Farr 60 until shortly before Saturday's 2pm start. 35 boats are entered for the Wicklow Sailing Club biennial race that can take up to one week to complete. Greystones Marina manager Alan Corr told Afloat.ie he is delighted to be able to offer convenient deep water berths for the high tech visitors.
