With 68 entrants and a host of visiting boats, the inaugural Greystones Harbour cruiser regatta made a wonderful spectacle for Greystones Sailing Club and the newly opened Greystones Harbour marina when it was staged yesterday in sunny weather off the Wicklow coast.
The new marina which has 100 berths swelled to capacity at the weekend with up to 150 boats berthed.
The successful staging and significant numbers involved for the one day event has already piqued interest from neighbouring clubs who say they are now considering feeder races for a similar 2014 regatta. It’s a spirit of co-operation between east coast clubs that might yet see the return of the south–east coast regatta.[button link=”http://afloat.ie/port-news/greystones-harbour/item/23146-greystones-marina-packs-them-in-for-first-cruiser-regatta” color=”black”] Read more @Afloat[/button]
