p.3 The Countess of Dufferin Yacht - This yacht is still for sale on very reasonable terms, in New York harbour. She is only one year old, is fitted up with every modern convenience, and is in every respect a most desirable boat for any one who likes yachting. But she is something more. She is the fastest sailer on the lakes, and would, with some very slight alterations, win the Queen's Cup against the fastest of the New York yachts. It will be remembered that when the builder Capt. Cuthbert, sailed her on the ocean last year against the best American yacht, she was only 7 1/2 minutes behind her rival, and had she not been so hastily fitted up, and had Capt. Cuthbert been thoroughly acquainted with the course, there is no doubt that she would have won the race. Is there no sporting gentleman in Canada who will buy the vessel and run her again for the Queen's Cup and the honour of the Dominion.? [Cobourg Star]
