Yacht -Lost Use of Club Top-sail.

other the Resolute proved manifestly superior In the windward work,
slightly inferior In tho close reach of the second leg, and once more
plainly superior over more than a half of tba third leg.
As to tho gain of Shamrock In the close reach on the second leg It
may be said that It proved, In connection with previous work, hat she
Is probably better on that point of sailing In all winds than Resolute but
she is not enough hotter.
Taking tbo race as a whole, It

roclc lost the use of her club topsail.
A rain squall appeared In the north.
and eventually hauled the wind to the
northwest. Tlvon the wind foil flat,
but came on opsin soon, and Reso
lute reached to the homo line- a fair
Of course tho last part of this let?
was wholly unsatisfactory as a test
of speed, but a auflldent test had
heeil made theretofore.
Unless there is a fluke Resolute
will win the fifth and final race of the
series and keep the cup.
For the first time In many years,
tho racera and spectators found a
UUck fog on the sea. -whem thev ar
rived at the lightship oft Saindy Hook,
but at 12.15 o'clock tlx tog rapidly
thinned and the two i-oers were then
seen under the usual ox oras ready for
Tttiej Racing jOommdttee at onco
tiatried dorwp, the pootjponement signal.
As the wfW Wthon ooonAwj fair and
true at about six knots, wit every
.appearance of growing, tho flnst leg
ywas laid soutt-OTitw nst to wind
ward. The oeoand was sot at east by
north, and the Ct-rd nortJrweot, vio
(haJf north. Tb eso olgala were bolst
d at 12.30.
A period of fvrbean cunutea was
tfhen allowed the racers for the usual
consideration of tho course and its
chances, and hn, at 12.45, tho wanv
tag edgnal was given.
The contest for position Which fol
lowed was not of special Interest, be
cause Oapt Burton had already placed
unomrocK on too wnea-ner quarter of
itesoiute, and e field hr there or In 1
nioireiwiuu revuni to Jier

lie did light good nrork. that Is to
nay, and he crossed tho lino on Ilco
lute'a weather quarter at auch a dle
lanoe that Capt Adams could not
Slve him any back win from Rcso
luto'a mainsail.
The ofllcial time of the atart was:
Rcaolute, 1.01.33; Shamrock, 1.01.56.
tlcsoluto led by 23 seconds.
After the crossing, however, the
Resolute atood on at bettor speed and
nt 1.07 Shamrock turned to the port
tack heading for Jorscy breezes
doubtless on the advice of Capt.
"Andy" Applegatt. It was very good
advice at that, for from that time on
the gontle gale grew steadily.
Until 2 o'clock tho raco waa some
what like that on Wednesday, saye
only that Shamrock had no occasion
to moke repeated tacks. Holding to
her courae she sagged slowry away to
leeward. Ilcsoluto hoadod at least
a half point higher during mot of
the time and Shamrock footed faster.
The wind varied somewhat, losing
a trifle In weight now and then but
regaining tho loss soon nnd going up
to Ibotter opeed. Then at 1J0 It 'hauled
to eoutlrwest, after which It gained
more rapidly and held true.
From 1.30, that ds to nay, the wind
km above eight knots and the racers
were aWo to point toward North
Ixung ranch. The Shamrock pointed
north of tho tall Branch port tower
wbllo tttesoluto pointed eouth of It.
Both put up their smallest Jib top
sails on their way to tho beach.
lAt this time 1t was Been that the
Shamrock was heeled well down on
her sailing lines but one beclod lesa
than Resolute.
The moat etrfklng fact about tho
model of tho challenger Is her ability
0 spread 20 per cent, moro canvass
(l,fc84 square foot more) and carry it
well when her displacement Ls but
K par cent, (Zzl cubic feet) tn ex
cess. Off North lying Branch, Shamrock
waa tho first to turn to the starboard
taclc A big pound net was dead
Ahead and ehe went about at 3.08.
Kesolute turned a little later being
then well out on Shamrock'a weather
The itwo yachts lhad traveled over
nine miles on that board. They now
were aJbout 3 3-4 raUea. as measured
on tha chart, from the turn and
Resolute could lay her eourso true to
the mark.

miiP, na she did on Wednesday. She
hold as high ns she could, .and she
made a awift board of It because tho
wlndi was up to at least twelve knots,
but Rfwolut did better still.
Just beforo reaching the mark Urso
lulo took in her Jib topsail. Then
she naswl off her sheets and rounded
the mark which under the rulo waa
pasned port side to. A renchlng Jib
torill tvus then sot quickly.
As Hhamrock had to paw tho umrk
on the same wide she turned to tln
first tack at 2.38 and rounded less tlvin
a minute later. Doth racers wcrj cor
dially applauded, of course.
The official time of the turn were:

onds at the start. sho had ga ned 1
minute nnd AS second.? on tbo first leg.
The gain was less than the old sal-
lot hnd calculated for her in advance
and .they therefore watched tho two
raocrs with lntcno Interest dnrlnn-
the second leg. It may bo confidently
asserted that at first Resolute reached
away from Sliamrock oven though a
clone reach Is the Challenger's best
point of failing. Resolute did this be
cause Shamrock's crew took down her
baby Jib topsail after rounding. They
ragged tt In tho wator and they then
set another jib topsail too small for
the occasion. It was not until 2.42
that Shamrock's first reaching jib
toponll was act.
That u was too small wns then

Shamrock was seen crawling up on
Resolute. It was demonstrated thnt.
when woll handled ln a smart breozo
sno can outsail trie defender close
hauled. Hho can mobahlv do It In
nny breeze when on that point. But
sho cannot gain enough In a ten-mile
leg to make up for what she loses on
a ten-mile thrash to windward.
Tne omclal time at the turn wns-
Resolute, 3.25.49: Shamrock, 3.27.16.
Resolute led by 1.27. She h.nl led
at the first turn by 2.11. Therefore
Shamrock gained forty-four seconds
ln a close reach of ten miles.
As nald. that was not enough tn win
the race, boat for boat, let alone
counting ln tlmo allowance.
After rounding the second turn tbo
wind was variously estimated from
eighteen to twenty knots. Sir Thomas
naa iDoon uut one race for the Cud in
wlrich he had os good a breeze, and
that was the second of the first series
Shamrock I. and Columbia.
Uut before the second turn thunder
wns heard rumbling in the haze at
tne north and later an ominous fog
bank appeared. Then n threatening
squall gathered ahead of the racers
clouds us well as the fog bank seemed
to roretell danger.
In tho meantime a man wns hoisted
up Shamrock's mnjrt to tho truck of
the club topsail. He worked nt Borne,
thing there for a tlmo nnd then was
hoisted up to the lower end of tho
yard (or sprit), where he niraln te
camo busy. What he, was doing could
not bo learned by those oiv the eve
ning press boat, but ho seemed to be
trying to nave the all from disaster,
because at 3.40 the top of the sail col
lapsed, leaving a triangle of It set
below a horizontal line from the end
of the gaff to tho topmast. At 3.44
the whole sail wns hauled down, und
then a rain squall enveloped her and
the whole fleet.
While the squall was on the n'lnrl
dropped. After the rain paused away

Resolute led by 3 minutes 41 sec

at tho start, shows sho had won, lioat
for lxjat. by 3 minutes 18 seconds.
Adding ttmo allowance (G minutes 40
seconds yesterday) her lawful gain
was 9 minutes 58 seconds.
The race to-day ls the fifth nnd lait.
It will consist of a bent fifteen ml'es
to windward nnd a run home if the
wind comes from the sea In that
case any wind fit to carry tho racori
over the course within the time limit
of six hours should glvo Resolute an
easy victory.
But Sir Thrsiias has yet one rh.ine
If the wind comes from the land
sny from the northwest at the siar:
custom will lead the committee to lay
the course dead before the wind and
send the racers away with splnnakerj
set. Shamrock is a very wvlft Milp
lioforo n light a'r. Moreover, a Light
northwest wind Is pretty sure to die
out and then wo shnll have a wind
from a new quarter.
The new wind might easily favor
Shamrock enough to give her the race.
Tn a variable, flaky wind, she mny
have llio luck to win, mid It would bo
a legnl or legitimate victory.
Tpo Cup has bean saved moro than
once by a lucky slant of light air.
Who can say whether It will or will
not be lifted by Just ouch ludk?
