But the most anticipated arrival at Sunday’s Taste of Greystones Regatta — after two previous no-shows — is some decent wind. Current forecasts suggest light westerly airs in store for tomorrow’s feeder races, with the final courses for the 27 ISORA starters and five DBSC classes being set this afternoon.
