YACHTING. The Port Chalmers Yacht and Motor Boat Club held tiieir first &oiies of races on Saturday. The wind at the start was a full-sail southerly breeze, which gradually eased olf towards the finish of the race. Tho Myro proved the winner, she practically having a sail over, with the exception of tho Miti. It is about time that the crews of tho other local boats got out of tho habit of rigging their boats at the last minute, this alone being the reason of Eileen and Vera not being able to be at the starting lino in time. Tho Vera had tho misfortune to break her gaff at the start, and had to retire; while iho Eiken, being late, did not complete the course. At the end of the first round the Miti stuck on the bank, and by the t.me she cot off it was no use for her to continue the race. They now have a complete c'hart of tho sandbanks, and arc finite confident that such a thing will never haopen again. Tho motor boat race was declared off, as several of the owners have not been able to get their launches ready ; but it is to be hoped that everyone will lie prepared for the next race", which is to be held on the 12th and that there will bo no delay at the starling line. It is encouraging to the club to” have a visit from an outside yacht, and the presence of the Myro on Saturday was much appreciated by all. 00LT\ The mixed foursome competition for the Sr.vcood Cup fixed for to-morrow afternoon has'been postponed. ’swimming.
