p.3 Toronto, Sept. 7th - The regatta of the Royal Canadian Yacht Club commenced this morning and will be continued tomorrow. Today the race is for two valuable cups presented by Commodore Hodder and the Prince of Wales' Challenge Cup open to yachts owned by members of the Club only. The weather is dull and wind light, so that fast sailing cannot be expected. The course is 32 miles. The following yachts started: Vixen, Brunette, Coral, Gorilla, Geraldine, Oriole, and Ripple. After sailing a short distance the Ripple returned, not wishing to compete, as she has won the Prince of Wales' Cup once. At present, 1:30 p.m., the vessels have completed about half the course, and the Brunette of Hamilton is leading.
