Steady Breezes and Summer Seas
For Yachtsmen the Year Round
YACHTINO Is one ot the most
dellRlitful pastlmcg of Ha
waii. SallliiK over the sum
mer seas, Its nlwnys Bum
mer hero when the fresh,
licalth-gUIiiR trade winds blow over
the mountains and furnish a steady
motive power. Is a recreation tinsut

so dependable no sudden squalls to
endanger the safety of jour craft
no sudden calms lo liave sou drifting
on a breathless ocean.
Ono of tho most pleasurable excur
sions for the yachtsman Is a sail, with
n fair wind, to Pearl Harbor. A Ir
orous brcezo Is always ready In Hono
lulu harbor during the season of tliu
trades. And the enjoyment begins
with the start of the Journey. What
Is more Interesting than the water
Tront of a busy city Steamers and
wind-jammers from all parts of the
world meet on common ground at this
cross-roads of the Pacific.
After passing out of tho haibor en
trance between two sentinel lines of
red and black buoys, tho yacht Is
headed toward Barber's Point, which
Is also the direction of Pearl Harbor.
You do not sail to the point, however,
us tho buoys marking Pearl Harbor
channel are sighted long before tho
point Is reached As you draw away
from Honolulu nnd the vista broadens
you have a flno view of tho city and
Its beautiful background of mountains.
Tho waterfront and shipping now
fndlng rapidly, form a delightfully
picturesque foreground, Behind tho
shipping solid business blocks suggest
something of the com ""f" of th
oily. Tho tops of residences can Im
seen here and there mm id-ig through
a green panoply of trf.is, ,lng the
Idea of cool, comf -table, extensive
grounds around their.. Tho final
charm Is given h Jocnslonil groups
of cocoanfct pilms holding aloft above
all other greenery, their plumed
heads. They bestow upon the scene
a tropical look and a grace that would
be entirely lacking without them
Hack of nil this loveliness are tho
green covered mountains fluted with
Innumerable plcturesriuo valleys. It
would bo surprising not to sec at least
ono rainbow spanning a valley's en

lights and shadows strive for effects
like vain peacocks displaying their
plumage. Sun-kissed mountains and

(By CHARLES R. FRAZIER)
scene Is constantly chnnglng with
kaleidoscopic rapidity. Willi such
entrancing beauty to look back upon
Is It strange that for tho nonce you
forget that the boat Is traveling at an
exciting clip over the rolling sea. She
Is cutting tho water gracefully under
the propelling Influence of the steady
trade and leaves behind n well de
fined vake. Tho rudder hums under
the stress and 'the sail bellies nnd
strains In eagerness. What sport can
bo so exhlleiatlng as this? Nature's
pure ozone, undellled, to breitho nud
orlvo you on No odor of gisollnp;
no chug chug of an engine; but the
spirit of the wind nbout you and tho
feel of Its pulse as It comes with In
creasing and dlminlshlni: force. Ono
cannot get away from tho Idea that
tho boat is a lUIng creature.
The course Is close to tho shore
reef that ghes warning of Its presence
by n lace-like fringe of breakers dash
ing ngalnst It. Tho colors of tho
water aro simply glorious, A light
green near tho reef blends into a deep
er, more luminous green farther out,
which in turn ends abruptly in a deep
Indigo. Glancing downward you 110
tlco that tho water seems very shal
low. The bottom can plainly ba seen
as you Rklm along and Bhows curious
nnd surprising coral formations. No
glass bottomed boat Is necessary here,
for tho sea Is clear us crystal. Tho
Uvldncss Is almost too startling for
one expects to feel tho boat crash
ngalnst the bottom at miy moment as
It falls Into n trough of tho sea. Cloud
shadows are reflected on tho wutei
nnd tho clouds overhead add no little
lo the charm of the hccncry. A fair
day In Hawaii Is never without Its
clouds. They Interccdo between the
sun nnd the nature-lover at frequent
enough Intervals to glvo him BUfllclcnt
protection from tho rays. A troll-lino
Is trailing out far behind In the hope
of catching an ulna. No fish yet; but
0u see several schools of lllug-fl-li
as you speed along.
Now you can observe two dark ob
jects at a distance. In tho water,
about midway opposlto tho long, low
lying Ilaiber's Point. They aro tho
buoys that mark tho cntranco to Pearl
Harbor and sou will bo obliged to pay
particular attention to n number moro
of them if jou would reach your des
tination In safety. The Pearl Harbor
channel Is tortuous nnd narrow. It
winds around through submorged
reefs In n very confusing manner; and
unless you follow tho route very' care
short of clothes and need the services of
fully you are likely to be bumping
hslplessly on tho Jagged coral.
Heretofore you have had n fair
wind. Nov. you must tack up tho
channel, The lacking Is exciting, too,
for the boat careens well oer on her
sides until tho water comes up to Iho
Tho old wind-mill and dilapidated
houses you aro rapidly approaching
aro landmarks of Puuloa. This was
unco tho residence of n wealthy Isl
ander; but now tho place has been
turned Into n salt works. Sec that
low-lying, nlmost clicular cnclosuro
In the water, formed by a continuous
wall of rocks? That Is tho "shark
pen." At high tide It Is entirely sub
merged nnd wen' It not for tho warn
ing black buoy marking Its edge tho
sailor would bo in danger of running
his craft upon It. There Is n wharf
right along side the pen and there
Is a good sized steamer nt tho wharf.
This is only ono illustration of tho
deceptive appearance of Pearl Harbor
waters and tho many hazards that
beset tho navigator. Unless you havo
learned the course yon would not caro
to venture up a channel so full of
perils. Von must know tho location
of every Jagged point that is lying in
wait for tho novitiate.
To tho left is tho cntranco to tho
West Loch and straight ahead Is tho
Mlddto Loch. Tho channel, following
Its sinuous Intent, affords no view, at
this point, of cither body of water.
After n few more tacks Ford's Island,
Biigur-cnno cocrcd, comes Into view;
nnd fnr beyond arc tho green expanses
of some Onhu's largest and finest su
To tho right is tho cntranco to the
Kast Loch nnd branching from this
channel, opposlto tho middle of Ford
Island, la tho South East loch, the
smallest of nil, on tho shores of which
tho Federal government plans to con
struct Its great naval docks.
Now. you are on tho last tack, with
tho course set for tho pavilion nt tho
water's edge- at Iho end of tho penin
sula. You aro In Pearl Harbor now
In the Middle Loch ono of the finest
harbors In tho world. Can you sco,
u few years hence, a populous city
around and several of Undo Sam's
flno battleships riding at anchor on
the wnter? Ono cannot help but
prophetlzo as he beholds this magnifi
cent haven. Hut. to return to tho
present, could any view bo moro en
trancing, mora romantic, moro glori
ous than this bit ot semi-tropical
This is the
ice west of Chi
cago. Our Boys
Sleep at Home;
Not on the
a laundercr, put it.up tools to help

fptlpscrlbablo effects spreading a
maglcTi splendor over all. Comfortnbto
cottages nnd bungalows, nestling
nmongst (he palms and nlgnrobaa,
glvo tho place an inviting and hoard
tablo look. As nt Honolulu harbor,
lofty mountains furnish n background
of grandeur nnd strength.
A landing is soon mado at tho wharf
nud an end has coma to tho oxhllor

that's always tho way. Sailing Is ono
of Hawaii's greatest recreations.
