New Date For 'Windless' Greystones Regatta is October 4

Class 3 start off Greystones on Saturday
New Date For 'Windless' Greystones Regatta is October 4

The AES sponsored Taste Of Greystones regatta will be run again on Sunday Oct 4th with a slightly later start of 12.30 to allow boats sail over to the Wicklow coast. As reported earlier, regatta organiser Daragh Caferky told Afloat.ie that the club hopes to run two races on the day.

Unfortunately, despite a bumber entry of 120 boats for Wicklow's biggest regatta lack of wind forced its abandonment on Sunday. But Cafferky adds 'At the heart of the Taste of Greystones regatta is the social event and whilst the weather may have cheated the sailing it certainly did no damage to the social experience'

An estimated 500 sailors made good use of all the Greystones hospitality and, says Cafferky the marina reported boat parties right through the night.

All entry and registration remains live for Oct 4th so hopefully many of the visitors can make a return trip.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
