After a lengthy discussion on the question of whether the regatta should be held on Jubilee Day or ou the usual one, Boxing Day, it was decided to fix on the latter, so that in the event of there beine another regatta held on Jubilee Day it would give the yachting and rownig men earlier interest in the aquatic sports. The various committees were appointed for carrying out the details. It is expected that this yeai's regatta will prove as interesting and successful bs those in previous years. Mr Fullerton and Kf Hendry were re-elected treasurer and secretary.
