The buoyant Dublin yacht racing scene moves en masse to County Wicklow this weekend as two of the country's leading yacht racing organisations prepare separate feeder races for the Taste of Greystones Regatta on Sunday afternoon.
A 25–boat ISORA fleet will have a feeder race starting at 10.00 on Saturday morning from Dun Laoghaire as one of the final races of the offshore season.
And from 12.45 on Saturday, Dublin Bay Sailing Club (DBSC) feeder races to the County Wicklow port will also be sailed.
For participating DBSC classes namely, Cruisers 1, Cruisers 3 and Cruisers 5, the race south – that could see as many as 50 DBSC yachts competing – replaces the regular DBSC fixed-mark courses scheduled for this date.
The Greystones results will also count for DBSC Saturday Series 2 (ECHO, IRC and scratch where applicable).
On Sunday, the combined fleets with assorted other boats from the East coast will compete in two ECHO handicap races in the 'Taste of Greystones Regatta' sponsored by BJ Marine.
A target time of 14:30 for completion of two race series has been set and prize giving is targeted for 15:30 to allow visiting boats reasonable departure time. Only one race is required to be completed to constitute a series.
The entry fee for all Classes is €75.00 and this includes a free marina berth on Saturday night, a complimentary drink voucher at the sailing club and Beach House Pub plus a free Breakfast on Sunday morning before racing!
