f ' judging by tho war tho mon went to worlc
I' ' every one was dotermlned that even It tho old

I j , ond aftor It wns all ovor It would be known that
I thero had been a yseht raco.
J ' An soon as the boats were started the covers
I I .' wore taken oil tho mainsails and they were

bo wanted. On tho Columbia the jlbwas sent

i Tho Defender led the way nil down tho bay,
I & with the Columbia about two miles astorn.
ft James Btlllman was on board the Dofender
K with II r, Duncan, Her sulls were nil ready (or
I , hoisting, and the Hcandlnavlan crew, with
I their whltu uniforms and rod and black toques,
I ', looked very neat nnd woro apparently ready
I to show that they wore just ns Rood as
I tho Deer Island sailors on tho Columbia.
! At 10. U.1 o'clock tho Defender was at tho oast-
m I ., ern end of tho Qedney Channel end Capt.
II Ilhoades set the men to work to got the elub
M topsail ready. The big spars were placed In
I position on the dock and tho sail was brought
uf up nnd laced for hoisting.
I g At 10:30 o'clock tho Columbia was off tho
fit point of tho Hook nnd tho straps wero loosened
KE off tho mainsail. The crow lined ud on each
side of the mast, one stdo having the main hal-
yards nnd tho other tho throat hazards, and
! the big tiloeo of canvas began to rise. It set
I well for a now nail. It seemod to bo u
I) little full on tho clew and the leach was rather
ft loose. Theso defects can soon bo romodled.
y The malnenll on tho Dofendorwns set shortly
I after tho Columbia's was run up. Tlin crow
got to work at 10:37, and as tho sail was hoisted
I two battens w ore put In to male it set well on
I the loach. The colors of Mr Duncan, a red and
18 blue swallowtail pennant with a white ball In
B !U tho contro, fluttered below tho gaff. At this
)I time tho tug Luckenbaek, with Superintendent
i Niels Olsen on board, was heading for tho Scot
H V land Lightship. Bho was to log the courso as
B K soon ns the Ilogatta Committoo had decided
B X' whoro to sond tho racers.
B The Defendor was painted last Saturday and
B i Monday. The palr.t, which Is a special prepa-
H I ration that will hold to tho aluminum topsides,
B j- looked mottled and patchy. Otherwise tho
B , yacht had tho spio and span appearance of a
Bj new boat.
Bj As soon as the mainsails had been hoisted
B and properly trlmrnod.Cnpts. BarrandRhoades
B) took tho wheels on their respective yachts
BJ and club topsails wero sent alnlt. This Is
Bj , always a delicate Job. Tho tugs still had
BJ , hold of tho j adits and wero keeping
BJ ! their heads to tho wind. Tho Scandlna-
H f lan sailors nn tho Defender seemed to
BJ S be on their mottle and quickly sent tho big sail
BE 1 aloft, where two men guided It Into position
BJ & nnd lashed It. Tho Columbia's elub-topsnil
BJ I was not hoisted as easily ns that nf the De-
BJ I (ender. A rain squall broke about this time
H and made things unpleasant for a while, but It
BJ b toon cleared avvny.
B J A tew minutes past 11 o'clock Commodore J.
BE Plerpont Morgan's handsome steamer Corsair
BJ passed out by tho Hook. She was travelling
BJ 1 like a racehorso trying to got to tho Lightship
BJ on time. Two tiny flags fluttered from her
BJ trlatlc stay. Ono was red, white and bluo,
BJ - which, according to the International code of
BJ signals, represents the lotterT, and tho other
BJ I was a yellow flag, which stands for tho letter Q.
BJ i These two letters meant that tho start would
BJ . t be made from the Bandy Hook Lightship, and
BE j the fleet at once headed for that mark.
BJ Ij Tho Defonder at 10 minutes past 11 o'olook
BK I oast off hor tow, broke out her ilb und stood
BE I on tho starboard tack toward tho Lightship.
BE ! The wind was brisk and she heeled grace-
BB 1 fully. Btorm clouds darkened tho horizon
BE j shoreward, and tho prophets doclared dole-
BE ,l fully tint the portending downpour would
BE ' kill the breeze. Italn spluttered out of
BE tho blackness as the Columbia east oil
BB her tow and proceeded toward the Lightship.
BB j The breeze died out. and for some tlmo the
BE yachts wero in the doldrums. Thoy pounded
Bh , and smacked the seas with their ennvox bows,
BE sending fountains of spray spurting to port
BBEt and starboard. The rain censed, leaving tho
Eflf' yachts becalmed. Then a llttlo puft came out
BEL of the southeast. Then there was another
BB puff, the sails filled again nnd tho racers stood
BB j for the Lightship. The wind soon became
BB steadier, blowing from tho south.
BB When the Regatta Committoo saw that tho
BB Columbia and DoL'ndor could rench the. Sandy
BB llook Lightship, nnd tnnt the wind gavo prom-
BB Iseof holding, the flng for tho letter T wns
BB hoisted on the trlatlo stay, vthioh notified the
BB yaohtsmon that the race would bo over at rl-
BB angular course. The tug Luckenbaek, which
BB1 had kept close to the flagship, also hoisted this
BB, signal, to repeat It to those that could not see
BH it flying from tho Commodore's stoamer.
BB; The Corsair auchorod to the oastward of tho
BB Lightship at a distance that gave ample sea-
EBV room to the racers.
EBB Then thore w as another wnlt. This time It
EBEJ was to see that the wind held truo and to mold
JJflE any flukes if possible. At about twenty mln-
BBv utes before noon the course signals wero
BH hoisted. The triangle was thirty miles
BBtf ' In length, each sldo bolng ten miles.
BB The first leg was southwest by south,
BH! the second east, one-halt south, aud
BBk tho third north-northwest, ono-hulf west.
BBe Theso directions were signalled with the code
BBV Hags, and they flow in three strings from the
BBl stay on the Corsair, Tho tug Luckenbaek went
BBl alongside the flagship, Superintendent Olsen
BBf received his final Instructions and tho work of
BBf logging off tho course began. Floats with red
BBk and white flags were carried on tho tug to be
BBl t, thrown overboard at tho end of the ton miles
BBf 1 as turning marks. Those flags ware to be itft
Hr i on the port hand.

Intention to let the Defender get a good start,

second, or handicap, gun was fired just as tho
Columbia rcachod the line, and, trimming her
sheet flat, sho crosed nt 1:00:0'.:, or with a
handicap ot two socoiuls.
Just 03 the Columbia crossod, tho Dofender
tacked to starboard, nnd as she nctit about
tho crew took another pull on her sheets to get
them flat. This tack v as only held for nbout a
minute and then sho spun nround to port nnd

wero footing fast, and the Defonder seemed to

Defender's mainsail set like a board, but the
Columnla's appeared to bo too baggy. The

The ciews wero up to windward and both

Capt 1'ihoad.s at once followed suit on tho De
fender nnd the two jnohts were heading
Bouth-f-outheast. They wero bucking n head

a little. The Columbia's shniKllkenoo would
lift Into the air on a wavo and then shoot ovor,
vvhllo the Defender's bow would slap and send

Bo far tho Columbia had mado no perceptible
gain. The Defender was footing very fust, but
on this tack the Columbia seemed to be eating
out to windward slowly but surely. Tho wind
was BtUl freshening nnd at 1.20 o'clock It
canted a llttlo to the westward, but later
on got back to its old quarter, a lit
tle west of south. At 1 3'1 -HI tho De

o'clock tho Columbia had eaten out to wind
ward so that she wassailing In tho wake of tho
Defender about MOO yards astorn It had taken
about Ave miles sailing to do this, the yachts
being about half way out to tho first mark.
Tho Defender was sailing beautifully. As
steady as a church she stood in the water, nnd
sho put up such a race that many began to
think that she would turn tho first mark In tho
load. (Slowly but surely the Columbia was
creeping up. but It did not seem that sho could
reach tho mark in time
At 2 o'clock tho wind grew lighter The
