To Start cm Tuesday Of Sandy
Hook Lightship.
Unless aJD signs fa.fl, those who go down the
fcay this week to see the yachts off in their three
thousand mile ocean race for the cup pre
sented by the German Emperor will be well re
paid for their time and trouble, if showing their
patriotism by wishing the yachts bon voyage can
b. called trouble. It is certain that those who
do not go will miss a gnat treat, for the start
of those yachts — eight American, two English
and one German— will undoubtedly be the sight
of a lifetime.
There has never been, in the history of yacht-
Ing, an ocean race of anything like the interna
tional importance of this one. Three of the con
testants have crossed the Atlantic — the Valhalla
:uid the Sunbeam from England and the Ham
burg from Germany — to take part in the race,
rhich starts from Sandy Hook lightship at 2
o'clock on Tuesday afternoon. The Valhalla is
Chr jnly ship-rigged yacht in the world, and it
wiD be well worth the trip to sea to witness the
tnnnoL'iivringf of that vessel. If the wind is fair
the will probably cross the starting line with
|»Mrty-eight sails set.
This race is indirectly the result of the efforts
).' Robert E. Tod when he was commodore of the
Atlantic Yacht Club a few years ago. He offered
: rises for the winners in a series of ocean races
r-T this coast. Sir Thomas Llpton, while here in
ISO 3, seei ;g the interest that was manifested In
these contests, offered a cup for a transatlantic
face to be managed by the Atlantic Yacht
Pub. k,jun after the German Emperor, without
Jmowing of Sir Thomas Lirton's offer, also
offered a cup for the same purpose through his
Representative, Lord Lonsdale, Commodore Tod
then persuaded Sir Thomas to -withdraw his cup
|n favor of the German Emperor.
After much correspondence on the question of
ihat club should manage the race, the Em
peror*s illness compelled him to withdraw his
offer for a year. When he renewed it. In 1904, It
was with the understanding that the race should
be managed by the Kaiserlicher Yacht Club, of
Kiel. That club has appointed a sub-committee
in England, a sub-committee In America and a
committee in charge of the start The latter
committee consists of Commander Georg Ileb
binghaus, of the imperial German navy, who is
also the naval attache of the German Embassy
al Washington; Commander Harry H. Hosley,
U. S X.: Oliver E. Cromwell, H. dc B. Parsons,
Newbury D. Lawton and Edward IT. Wales, of
i te New-York Yacht Club, who will start the
yachts from a tug anchored off Sandy Hook
The finish off the Lizard, England, will be
timed by Captain Coerper, of the imperial Ger
man navy; the Earl of Lonsdale and Sir Edward
Biibeck. They will be stationed on board a
vessel anchored about a mile due south from
the Lizard lighthouses.
The conditions governing the race provide
that it should be open for cruising yachts of
any nation of more than eighty tons. Custom
House measurement, enrolled in a recognized
ya<ht club. Auxiliaries arc to sail with their
propellers removed from the shaft, and no steam
may be used for hoisting sails, except on square
rigged yachts. The international rules of the
road at sea will govern the race, with the addi
tion that if an overlap exists between two
yachts when both of thorn, without tacking, are
about to pass a mark on the required .side then
the outside yacht must give the inside yacht
room to pass clear of the. mark. The prepara
tory gun will be fired at 2 p. m. on Tuesday, a
warning gun at 2:10 p. m. and the starting gun
at L':l.~. p. m. The time of the yachts crossing
the line will not be taken by the committee,

will be timed as having started at 2p. m. The
