p.3 Our Yacht Race - Referring to the yacht race here on Dominion Day, the Belleville Intelligencer says: "The arrangements are very satisfactory, the prizes being liberal and management in excellent hands. In all probability three of our local fleet will enter, besides the Surprise of Trenton. Owing to the Katie Gray being matched to sail an important race in Toronto, she will go to Port Hope. It is a pity that the dates of the races at these places should conflict, as it is the desire of our local yachtsmen to meet the craft owned by their fellow sailors in friendly contests. Had either Kingston or Port Hope postponed their races until the summer cruise of Belleville fleet takes place, which will be about five weeks hence, this result could have been brought about. It is now too late to make other arrangements, but probably another season the matter will be better considered, in the interest of the noble sport." Mr. Parnell, Secretary, has received a letter from Mr. R.S. Bell, Secretary of the Bay of Quinte Yacht Club, embodying the above, and stating that the yachts from Belleville will probably go to Oswego for the regatta there on the 4th of July.
