The Cup Is
New York, October 20. Both yachts passed out of the Hook aLo,
o'clock under sail At rr.10 there was 1 strong northeast wind blowing
about i 5 knots. The surface of the ocean was covered with white caps
and there was every prospect of a quick race.
The preparatory gun was lired at 10:45, the warning gun at 10:50.
The official time of start was Shamrock, 11:00.34, ""d Columbia, 1 1:01 -.1
The course is to south by west
return. The Columbia was reported as having some trouble with her
spinnaker, but at ii:o3 1-2 it was reported to be drawing svell.
At 1 1:10 the Shamrock had still a slight lead, though the Columbia
seemed to be drawing tip on her, the Shamrock's spinnaker not belrig
well broken out at the head. At ii:n the Columbia was again reported
to be gaining and the wind was then blowing 30 miles an hour from the
At 11:30 the Columbia was again -reported as having trouble with
her spinnaker and at 11:32 with six miles of the course covered the
Shamrock still had a lead of 203 yards The Columbia's spinnaker con
tinued to give trouble and at 1 1:43 it was stated that the Shamrock was
hcrcasing her lead.
Passing Long Branch, some 10 miles from the start, it was estimated
that the Shamrock led by 55 seconds. Immediately after that the Co
lumbia commenced to close up the gap, though both boats ere sailing
very fast and their sails were drawing well. Asbury Park reported the
yachts as 200 yards apart four miles from the stake-boat. It had been a
beautiful race up to that point.
The Columbia continued to- crawl up and passing the Shamrock
rounded the outer mark at 12:18:30,
At 12:22 both yachts were pitching heavily, but the Columbia was
to vmuwaru anu still leading. f
On the return Asbury Park estimated that the Columbia was lead
ing by about 1-4 of a mile. Long Branch at 12:43 1-2 reported the
Shamrock gaining. Both boats were pointing high aud at times the sea
broke completely over them. At 12:40, the breeze seemed to be increas
ing and the yachts were under jibs, staysails and mainsails only.
At 12:53 the Columbia was increasing her lead. The sea was wash
ing her from stem to stern, but she was pointing high and driving along
at a high rate of speed At 12:50 she had a good half-mile of a )e:ul
Both were on the starboard tack and had covered about a mile and a 'bah
on the way towards the finish line. At 1:10 the boatswore on the star
board tack off Long Branch with the Shamrock seemingly 3-4 of a mile
in the rear.
At 1:25 me uoiumma was anout se.cn miles trom trie iigiiisiup ami
the Shamrock seemed to be cutting down the Columbia's lead. The
Shamrock has certainly been giving a splendid exhibit on of sailing.
At 1:53 the Columbia wis 4 1-2 miles from tlu finish line. The
Shamrock was laying over under heavy,press of sail. She had her club-

At 2:02 both were headed for the finish line. At 2.26 it was estimated
from the Highlands that the Columbia was a short mile from the finish
line and that bhe might touch the line on the next tack. The Columbia
crossed the line unofficial, at 2:40:30. The Shamrock is two-thirds of a

Sir Thomas' hard luck continued to follow him. I lis bo it was very ba Jly hand
led today In spite of the regulation talent aboard of her. The two English captains
and the Captain of the Emperor William's yacht, Meteor failed to get her over the
line before the handicap gun was fired, and sue went into the race penalised by two
seconds on that account. The additional ballast put into her yesterday also seems to
have been a blunder onthepirtof her managers, as It has Increased the sire of the
body to tie forced through the water, and in the ilzlit air that prevailed todav. retard

the Columbia wins, there Is a possibility that two more races will be sailed. A sug
gestion to this effect has been made and Sir Thomas appears an.xloui that It should be
carried out. He has been greatly disappointed in the showing his boat has made, but
believes that she might do better over a triangular course In a heavier wind, and has
said In so many words that he would be very pleased to sail two more races.
The preparatory signal was given at 10:45, the warning at 10:55, the start at n
and the handicap gun at 11:02.
At the warning signal both yachts w Ith booms to starboard, and sheets flattened
well, were sailing to northwest, parallel to the line, to about a quarter of a mile east,
the wind lltttle abaft the beam. The Columbia was to windward, with the Slr.un
rock on her lee beam n couple of lengths away. It being necessary to use up the live
minutes bitween the warning and starting signals, not 11 yachts stood far over to the
north-east, gradually lulling to the northward. When three minutes were left the Co
lumbia lufted into the wind, and, coming about, headed for the line Captain Ho
garth, Instead of tacking like the Columbia did. wore the Shamrock square around on
her heel, bringing her close under the Columbia's lee, both boats having the booms to
port. Captain Hogarth lost both time and headway by wearing Instead o' tacking, so
that when she hauled up nearly on the wind, the Columbia, under better headway,
was pointing straight for the line, a couple of lengths to the good As soon as Cap
tain Hogarth realised this, be broke out the Shamrock's balloon-jib top sail, her crew
trimming the sheets smartly, just as-the gun fired. The Columbia's crew broke out
her balloon sail when the smoke from the gun was blowing away. The Columbia
crossed the line 27 seconds In the lead, without the handicap, which means two
lengths In advance. She crossed about the centre of the line, and Captain Hogarth,
after a vain attempt to luff out across her wake and obtain a weather position, kept off
and gave the Shamrock a good fill.
During the first 15 minutes of the racing, the Columbia seemed to increase her
lead. After that for the next half-hour the Shamrock apparently was gaining on the
white sloop. At lisp, when they both decided to abandon the luffing game and set

yachtsman knows. While the wind remained sieadv In the same ouarter it diminish

for the finishing of the race was not verv encouraging, at 1 o'clock, when the outer
mark was in plain sight from the racing yachts. At 1 ,2 the Columbia gibed to
port nnd was quickly followed by the Shamrock, which dropped her spinnaker boom
to starboard and set the sail at 1:45, the Columbia setting her spinnaker four minutes
later. It w.is a long drift before the wind with scarcely enough of It to fill their Kills
during the next 45 minutes. It was noted, as the Columbia came down for the mark
that her great main-sail with Its cross-cut cloths, was a brand new one, having In It
four batons and two reef-bags. The cloths In hea spinnaker ran horizontally, while
those on the Shamrock's were perpendicular.
The Columbia was six minutes, eighteen seconds, ahead at the mark-, her
