p.2 Yacht Race - In the race between the Challenge and Prima Donna, the latter and smaller boat came in the victor. The wind, which had been light during the day (Tuesday) dwindled away towards evening, and consequently it was not until 2 o'clock on the following morning that the winning boat reached the assigned return station. The stakes were handed over yesterday to the owners of the Prima Donna, who have thus taken two handsome prizes with their new yacht, while it will be remembered that with their old one, the Golden Arrow, they carried off the Silver Cup offered to competition last fall by the Kingston Regatta Club - an instance of success in yachting which is rare enough to demand special attention.
