Kingston Yacht Club

Notice is hereby given, that all Entrances for the Race, must be made on or before Saturday evening, at Mr. Perkin's Hotel.

Entrance - Four Dollars. Tonnage time - One minute to the ton.

Kingston, 14th October, 1851.

N.B. - The Kingston Yacht Club beg leave to state that notwithstanding the hints which the Whig of yesterday threw out about our Brockville friends, that it is not their wish that any boat at a distance, wishing to enter, should be excluded from the race, which is to come off in Kingston. And further, that notwithstanding the ungentlemanly conduct of some of the parties conducting the "Brockville Regatta," that they would feel glad to see any boat or boats which they may think proper to send to compete for the prize.
