and the Shamrock I. started to-day off
down the wind tor a leeward and wind?

good length ahead aa, tho boats woro sent
off. She gathered way faster and was off
with double that lead before the older
boat had fairly started. Tho wind was
fresh and caused some seas, but the chal?
lenger took tho Beas easily. At tho end
of tho first round the challenger had
gained two minutes on a seven-mile beat
to windward. As tho two yachts rounded
the Erin, spinnakers wero Bet for tho
next run to tho Shambles. Tho wind held
fresh and fairly steady, allowing an hon?

equally served by tho wind and sailing

Tho new boat had beaten Shamrock I.
