SAILBOATS IN THE HARBOUR
To the Editor of the Daily News.
Sir; Will you kindly permit me, through the columns of your valuable paper, to call attention to the reckless and very dangerous manner in which sailboats and steam yachts are managed, while the band is playing on the Queen's wharf on Thursday evenings. I think, with a great many others, that it is altogether too bad that the pleasure of those who prefer rowing should be spoiled by a few small craft of the above description, and something should be done to prevent their dashing in, at full speed, where the row boats are thickest. At any time it requires the utmost vigilance, on the part of the rowers, to prevent collisions with one another, but when a sailboat comes along - very often managed by an inexperienced person, and for that reason taking a very erratic course, it is almost impossible to keep out of the way. Should a row boat containing ladies or children be run down in this way, loss of life would in all probability be the result.
Yours, etc., Alpha
Kingston, Aug. 9, 1878
