Why He Lost The Race - Capt. Ames, of the yacht Merle, has returned to Oswego, and as an excuse that his boat was defeated said: "The course at Kingston was a very poor one and the captain of the Iolanthe, because of his familiarity with it, was able to get a 'slant' on the Merle several times. The Merle struck on shoals twice, and considering the circumstances against which she contended, made a good showing. She will not sail in the Belleville race." The course is the same over which regattas have been conducted for the past fifteen years. It is the best course of any sheltered waters.
