The Maui Challenge Cup.
There was a meeting of the don
ors of the Maui Challenge Cup this
week. The meeting was for a fur
ther consideration of the rules to
govern the race for the cup: Here
' tofore the race has been run over
the northerly course, and while
the course is all right in some sorts
of weather, still there are times
,when it would be a real hardship
and also dangerous to sail some of
the small boats over this course
Some of those present at the meet
ing had secured the opinion of
several expert sailors both amateur
and professional regarding this
matter, and it was the unanimous
opinion of those, who should know
that the course to the leeward of
Molokai was preferable in almost
all kinds of weather. This was also
the opinion of those present, and
on motion of Captain Parker it was
unanimously chosen as the cup
course in the future. The race will
be run under the racing rules of
the Hawaii Yacht Club.
The deed of gift will now be
made out with the conditions as
stated, and sent to the Hawaii
