The heavy Rale that blew from ths northwest In the mornlmtdotibtleBs kept many of the yachts in harbor. However, tbe regatta was n very sucossstol one. althoush very little of It oould be witnessed from the judees' boat. th James E. Wallace. This was owlne to there belne so many ynohts. and the necessity of sending them on their journeis in three sections, the last boat starting half an hour after tho first boat had crossed the line. Ths Iron steamer Cycnus was chartered by the association for Its cuests, and each of her decks was crowded with siglitsesr who seemed to thoroughly enjov themselves. It was a poor day for boats wttu weak spots In any part of tholr rlir. While coining down the bay Frank Ketchum a sloop Charm broke her tioom and had to bo bark. The Jnmes T. Corbett carried away her jib. and the sloop Charles ,1. Moore carrleo away her bowsprit nnd capsized. She had eight men on board, who were ploked up by a passing tug. Tbe ltegatta Committee, Ueorgs O. Gartland, William Cogger, nnd Cuarles E. Slmms.Jr., thought it proper to delay, the start as lone as Possible in order to give all a chance to get to the line. At 12:20 o'clook classes D, E. K, and U wer started. The course for three classes was to Handy Hook and back. The wind wns blowing; hard from tbe northwest. nnd the bouts had the fcenellt of a strong ohb tide. They carried only a jib and mainsail each, and these were reefed. Poms had two reeta In. and several of them housed their topmasts. Booms were over tn port, and they flew along in tbe wind. The order ot the start was: EmmyC. Beybolt. Katie Louisa, Mnsontt. Carrie Van Voorhees, hmuggler, Des sie, Orestes, Nautilus, Forsyth, Lottie. Prog ress, Beer, Agnes B Christine, l'tlncn hart, (lertrude, Notus. Emma and Alice. Routter. Johnny. Avalon, 1'eerless. 1'avor.ia. and Christiana. . At 12:30 o'clock classes 2, 3. 4. and 5 received the signal, and ten minutes latsr all the other classes were started. Classes 1 2, 4, 1,, and 7 turned nt the Homer Shoal Light: classes .1. .1. 8. nnd !l ot hwinborn Islnnd. and Llass in at Buoy 11 otTFort Tompkins. Mr. Hearst's steamer Vitmoosn passed slowly through tbe fleet in the lower bay. (ov. Ab hettwatcned the ra e from the New Jemer, and a cumber of sightseers were onthesisam er Half Moon. The outer marks were left on the port hand, and then they bad a thresh to windward. 8ev. eral accidents happened on thn voyage back when turning the outer mark. The cat Mar F. lot tier mast. When nearlng i-ort Hamilton tbe mast of thn cat Kinple nent br the losrd, Christine carrlod nwav ber topmast, and Chris tian a lost her lib. Notus sailed a good race. Cmlnc home she etrrled her gaff topsail, jib, and ataysall, and was a winner in ber class. At about 4 o'clock tbe wind shifted loth west vi aril and stave the racers a leading wind to tbe llnlsb. It was considerably lluhter tlmn at the atart. Following is tbe table of the yachts that finished : CLASS D BLOOITl 45 MET AMD OVKB 38 FKET. JTIaur.d Corret f'l tntQltt. Time Time Yachu Oumer. ft.
