p.3 Yachting - Mr. Greene launched the Zephyr yesterday. She will be brought to her moorings in the harbour on Monday or Tuesday. Cuthbert is building a five ton boat at Trenton. She is already well advanced. There will be a decided improvement in this class of craft in the bay district this season, and Mr. Cunningham's (of Kingston) Mystery will meet some smarter opponents than she had last year. It is probable that the Cricket Club will offer prizes for the second and third class yachts at their regatta on the 24th. [Intelligencer]
