Yachting Notes

The second class race was completed yesterday as follows:

H. M. S.

Victorine 3 44 00

Zitella 3 53 30

Laura 3 59 00

The figures given are those of the official timekeeper. The Laura it will be seen came in 5 1/2 minutes behind the Zitella, although she was only two minutes behind throughout almost the whole progress of the race. The extra time was lost beating from the Penitentiary to the Four Mile light. The Kingston boats were deceived somewhat in their weather predictions, having ballasted for heavy wind while the Victorine did not carry a pound of ballast. The latter boat had on extra man (sic) on board.

The Victorine, we believe, goes up to sail as a first class yacht at the Belleville regatta tomorrow. The Mystery, which was so successful yesterday, and also the Eureka and Emma will follow her example.

The Surprise, of Belleville, started for Kingston on Tuesday evening, but the wind failed her and she was unable to get down.

City of Kingston - This steamer, we have been informed by a passenger, arrived at Napanee on Tuesday in good time for the meeting. She left Kingston half an hour before the Maud and arrived at Napanee about three quarters of an hour after her.
