Greystones Sailing Club in County Wicklow believes that 'the summer that never happened' will surely kick in for its annual BJ Marine sponsored Taste Of Greystones Regatta next  Sunday, 25th at Greystones Harbour Marina.

This east coast regatta has averaged over 100 entries for the last four years making it one of the largest keelboat regattas of its type each year.

Greystones Sailing Club's, Darragh Cafferkey, an ISORA sailor himself, says 'the usual legendary welcome awaits all those decamping from Arklow, Howth, Poolbeg, Bray, Wicklow and Dublin Bay en masse.

Most of the participating clubs are planning feeder races along with the ISORA fleet. According to Cafferkey, 'the continuing support of BJ Marine ensures the usual generous hospitality awaits all visitors'.

'Entry remains at €75 and when you count the free beer, food and berth you probably make a profit, he says.

'The aim remains to finish racing by 14.00 hrs, water and feed all competitors and let them get on the way home by 15.30'.
