p.2 Yachting - A match for a thirty mile yacht race was entered into on Tuesday in Detroit between Captain John Prindiville, of Chicago, owner of the yacht Frolic, and the owner of the Canadian yacht Ina, of Toronto, for a purse of $1,000. If the race takes place at Toronto or Chicago $200 is to be allowed the visiting yacht for expenses. If the race takes place on Lake St. Clair, as it is likely to, each yacht will bear its own expenses. The Ina is a fast craft, having beaten the Annie Cuthbert. The Frolic was built and formerly owned by Capt. John Oades, of Detroit, when she was known as the Lena, and had a good record. The first class yacht Brunette arrived in the harbour this morning from a cruise among the islands. She leaves tomorrow morning for Mill Point and from thence to Hamilton. She is a very pretty black yacht, built by Capt. Cuthbert, and everybody who has time and cares anything about yachting should go and see her. She is lying at Gunn's wharf. The yachts Emma, Laura and Zitella will run their second race for the silver cup tomorrow at 12 o'clock.
