ULE Britannia, rule th
wave!” warbles the loyal
^ Briton, and, though other na
tions may scoff at his en
thusiasm. Britannia goes right on rul
Ing the wave. There is no doubt that
the English are the greatest race or
seamen In the world, quite; as great in
their way as the ancient Phoenicians,
and perhaps one of the secrets of their
greatness Is this enthusiasm and th*
fact that their women are, so many of
them, fine sailors. Nowhere else in
the world will you find so many women
devoted to aquatic sports and excelling
In them. It was Great Britain that
gave the world a marine heroine, Gra, >
Darling, and you will pever find a
liner, sturdier stock than the fisher
women of her northern Islands.

The Isle of Wight, where Queen Vic

Is the favorite yachting resort of roy
alty. In the season all the yacht own

Cowes week Is the great event In
'European yachting circles. The re
gatta Is a splendid function. In which
women play a prominent and pictur
esque part, even to contesting for
prizes. To this little town on the Isis
of Wight In the llrst week of August
repair every year the vessel:} of all ths
smart Set of the yachting fraternity.
The fact that It Is the headquarters of
the Royal Yacht squadron, which In
cludes all the crack vessels of Great
Britain's yachting aristocracy, has
made the town famous, and the regatta
Is Its chief source of Income. Various
races nro run for prizes offered by In
dividuals or clubs, but the most prized
trophies are the cups offered by tho
king, tho German emperor, ths Royal
Yacht squadron and the town of Cowes,
All tho finest vessel* compete for thexo
prizes, the race beginning at 10 o'clock
in the morning and being announced
by tlie firing of a gun from the castle,
which Is now the clubhouse of the Royal
Yacht squadron. All the craft In the
harbor are crowded with women in trim
costumes, and the results of the races
arc followed with the most Intense ex
citement. Tho lawn of the castle dur
ing the afternoons of Cowes week Is
crowded with the women relatives and
friends of members, but the entree Is
very difllt ulf for those not Included In
•be exclusive set of English society.
Indeed, for a newcomer to be seen on
the lawn at Cowes is enough to an
nounce to tho world that he or she has
arrived socially.
« m
The rich American’s love for yachting
has of course been fostered by the de
votion of tho English to this sport. It
Is even in its simplest form an expen
sive recreation, for a small yacht cost#
we|| up Into the thousands, and ths
expense of maintaining It Is very
gr< at However, many Americans ars
willing to spend this money, for noth
ing bring* them so quickly and closely
Into touch with the leaders of the old
world arlstnerades or even royalty It
self than to own crack yachts and have
th<. reputation <*f being .tmart sailors.
One lesson, h'vwever, might be learn
ed from the English While no ex
pense |<i spared In making their yachts
trim and fast, luxurious furnishings are
a secondary consideration. Indeed, the
yachts even of royalty are, from the
standpoint of the American new rich,
fitted out with gr*«t simplicity. Him
pllelty, too, characterizes the yachting
costumes of English yachtswomen.
Serviceable serges and the Irish tweeds
popularized by t»c Marchioness of
I'ondonderry, who is n great worker on
behalf of the Irish Industries, are ths
popular materials. Trim sailor hats
and substantial boots and gloves are
essential features of the modish yacht
ing costumes. Trains and the frills
and fripperies sometimes seen on
American yachtswomen are considered
bad form by the English ladles
