THE ANNUAL CRUISE OF THE NEW-YORK YACHT CLUB, BEGINNING THIS WEEK, WILL BE ENLIVENED BY MANY CLOSE CONTESTS.
THE X. Y. Y. C. CRUISE.
A BIG FLEET T< > RENDEZVOUS
BESIDES THE RACERS THERE WILL BE
MANY ACCOMPANYING SAIL AND
It Is estimated that New-London Harbor at
sunset to-morrow night will be filled as it never
was before with yachts of. every size and rig.
From the East and the West they are coming
to rendezvous for the annual cru.se of the New-
Tork Yacht Club, and when they are all at
anchor it will b>- safe hi say Thai do finer fle<n
of pleasure craft ever assembled to do honor to
"the red cross on the blue."
There are 4jO yacht owners in the club, and if
only a third of them respond to the summons to
be present at the meeting" of captains on board
the flagship Corona at 5 p. m. to-morrow, the
representation will be a good one. But it is
likely that nearly half the yachts in the club
•will Join the fleet, either at New-London or
Newport. Of these it is fair to suppose that
between twenty-five and thirty will take part
in the races from port to port. :;s many more
•will sail in company with the racing craft, and
the rest will i>e steam yachts, of which there
are 224 enrolled in the club. Many of these
have been built since last season, and may be
classed as the finest vessels of their kind afloat.
The names of the schooners, with their own
ers, that are likely to take part in the daily
runs from port to port are.

For the first time in many years the Hew-
Tork Yacht Club has accepted the invitation of
the Eastern Tacht Club to sail around Cape
Cod to Marblehead, there to race on August
11 in the annual regatta of the Eastern club, for
prizes offered by that organization.
All this nu-ans some interesting races from
port to port, and lots of work for the regatta
committee, which v.ill be quartered on the big
ocean going tug- Navigator, which it used dur
ing the last International race, off Sandy Hook,
when the Columbia and the Shamrock raced for
the America's Cup.
According to the official schedule issued by the
regatta committee, the first day's run. on Au
•just 5. will be forty miles— from Sarah's Ledge
buoy, just outside of New-London, to Brenton's
Re«f Lightship, off Newport.
On the following day the race for the Astor
cups will be sailed. Captain John Jacob Astor
has offered a $l.<«» 0 esm for schooners, and a
5.%00 cup for sloops, cutters and yawls, per
petuating the oldtime custom inaugurated by
Ogden Goelet, which, upon his death, was taken
up by Captain Astor.
The courses to be sailed on Astor oup day are
known as ■ "ours»-s Noa. 4 and ~>. They are both
thirty-eigrht mile* in «* --<l both are trl
angular in shape. The yachts, when sailing
Course No. 4, start across an imaginary line
drawn from a stake boat to Brenton's Reef
Lightship, sailing thence to and around a mark
boat -one mile d«o ~" n-k Island buoy
thence to and around a mark boat two miles
S. \V >y «V from West Island Light, and finißh
over a line drawn s»*= '• ■ *t>— start.
When «niling Course ICo. ."» they start as in
Course No 4 androu*- "'nevard Sound
Lightship, thence to and around the Hen and
Chickens Lightship and finish as in Course
For th» convenience of members and their
guests who wish to st*- the Astor cup races the
steamer Gay Head has l>een chartered by' the
club. She will leave the Old Colony Pier. New
.port. at 10 a. m.. and will touch there on her
return. Members of the Eastern Yacht Club
ir.ay also avail themselx-es of the privilege of
seeing: tfce race from this beat.
Thirty-seven miles Is ••.. next day's run. and
it takes the fleet from Newport to Vineyard
Haven. Caj. tains are instructed to leave the
Vineyard Sound Lightship and the Lucas Shoal
and Middle Ground buoys to starboard.
The next day** run will be the hardest of all.
especially for the smaller classes, and for the
large ones. too. if it happens to blow hard, or
if one of Nantuck.t's old fashioned fogs sets in,
for the distance from Vineyard Haven to the
next port. Provtncetown, i? seventy-nine miles
with a fair wind. If it's ahead they will
all sail one hundred miles or more before their
anchors are dropped in Provincetown.
The large classes are directed to leave Great
Round Shoal Light vessel and the whistling
buoy, nine and one-half miles to the east of it,
to port, making their distance ninety-five miles
The smaller classes are to leave Handkerchief
Light Vessel to port. Shovelful Light Vessel to
starboard and Pollock Rip Light Veasel to port.
Across Boston Bay to Marblehead—thirty
eight miles— will be the iu-xi day's run. provided
the yachts all arrive at Provincetown in time
to sail that morning— something that will be
largely determined by the wind and weather
encountered on August S. and during that night.
When at the finish the committee boat will
hoist a red ball by day. and at night she will
show a white light, also three red lights hung
vertically. She will also burn the club signal at
ten-minute intervals. In a fog, except at the
finish of the first day's run. the committee boat
will, at Intervals of not more than one minute,
ring the bell rapidly for about live seconds, and
at intervals of two minutes wi!! sound three
short whistle blasts.
The long run from the Vineyard to Province
town will be made doubly Interesting by the fact
that the cups presented by Commodore Lewis
Cass I^edyard will be sailed for on this occasion.
The navy challenge cups will be awarded, re
spectively, to the schooner and the single mast
ed vessel or yawl winning the greatest number
rif runs. Terms for the cups offered by the flag
officers and Captains Royal Ph<=-l]>s Carroll and
Cornelius: Vanderbtlt. and for thope which may
be offered by others, will be announced at New-
An interesting series of contests which will
mopt likely take place in ICarblehead Harbor
will be the race? fnr the Owl and Gamecock
colors, in which the launches, qms and dingles
belonging to vessels of the fleet will compete.

but it has always had a certain amount of social

side than at Fort Griswold.
But. though the season has been so backward,
the hotels have been well filled, and the cottages
are nearly all rented. The Casino has a large
patronage, and society has occupied itself with
the dances there, the hops at the Pequot snd the

golf, for several good reasons, but some of these
have been remo\*ed, and the golf club and the

The harbor now has a gay look. It is intended
to have a grand display of fireworks on the
grounds of the Pequot the night the New-York
Yacht Club makes its rendezvous.
There was much disappointment In the Pequot
