REGATTA AT PORT LEVY.
On two previous occasions tbe Cbristcburch Regatta Club held its annual function at Corsair Bay, but owing to the vicissitudes of the weather, mauers turned out somewhat unplea?ant for the competitors, and this year tbe committee decided to hold the regatta at Port Levy. A splendid course haa been obtained in the vicinity of 'the Maori pa, and, in order to facilitate the disembarking and transhipping of tbe Lyttelton Harbour I'cnrd recently completed the construction of, a new jetty. The etimrj for Saturday's events are well up to the standard of past years, and some good finishes should b6 witnessed. 'The Akaroa Boating Club has entered for four events, sending over three crews, as the seniors row in two races In eluded amongst tbe entries are four crews from the Star Club, YVelliugron, and critics in the northern city speak highly of their form. Tbe committee jx charge os the regatta has made arrangements for steamers to meet vari nus trains, and spectators will be given every opportunity to eDJoy a good day's outing. Luncheon and afternoon tea will be obtainable on tbe ground.
