Judge Abbott said that he had

The Nieuport Wiru in New
Victory Clan.
Duo to the fact that a nasty rain
squall swept over Gravesend Hay Juat
prior to the setting of the oourae alg
nals, the smallest fleet of the year raced
in the annual regatta of the (kavesend
liny Yacht Club yeatorday. Only nine
yi his came to the starting line, and
they wire sent away by the regatta
committee., mnde up of Commodore H.
Hotlaimr and Richard Rummell, during
the heaviest part of the squall over the
usual lower bay Inside course.
Fortunately, the rain did not last for
lonjr. I'nfortunatcly, It killed most of
the wind, nnd it cannot be ,aid that the
yachts had a very spirited regatta. The
most Interesting fight was In the new
Victory class. Again the winner was
Nleupcrt, tho property of young Leymnn
Brown. Nieuport defeated Dr. C. I
Atkinson's Cantlgny by 17 seconds over
a 7.3 mile course made up of tivo reaches
and a stiff beat home.
Although O. Hansen's Ethel was the
first yacht to finish In the second divi
sion of the handicap class, the winner
on corrected time was It Carey'g
Mavourneen. The smaller boat gained
her advantage In the first round by
standing out In the channel nnd obtain
ing the advantage of .t strong ebb tide.
Although idie was passed on the second
round, she more than jiaved her time
on the larger craft.
The largest fleet of the day raced In
the third division of the handicap class.
On both actual and corrected time the
winner was Commodore Hollamer'B Bug
II, The wind was light and from the
s nth throughout. Nvftr was it a really
good sailing breeze. As usual the start
and finish were off the Atlantic Tacht
( lub at Sea Gate. The course took
the craft to Bensonhurst, Fort Hamilton
nnd home. It was sailed twice by all
the yachts but the small handicap boats.
The summary :
