p.3 Yachting

Belleville, Oct. 6th - The annual regatta of the Bay of Quinte Yacht Club took place today with a fair amount of success. The wind was strong from the south-west, and the weather was uncomfortably cool, but there was a large gathering of spectators on the wharves. The second-class boats started in the following order: - Katie Gray 10:17:11; Surprise 10:18:27; Peerless 10:19:00; Emma 10:19:02; Zitella 10:19:10. The course was twice around the inner buoy, between Belleville, Massassaga Point, and Rednerville. After a most exciting race the finish was made as follows: - Peerless 2:55:18; Katie Gray 3:12:10; Surprise 3:18:00; Zitella 3:56:00. The Emma gave up the race. The Belleville yachts were first, second and third.

In the third-class there was only two starters, the Lady Kate and Sunbury. The latter won the race by several minutes, her competitor having met with an accident to her steering gear.

In the second-class race the Surprise has entered a protest against the Peerless.
