The patriotic regatta, to be held at Port Chalmers on Boxing Day, nrombes to be a most successful one. Excellent entries have been. received for all events, and the regatta promises to ho more than usually interesting. The following entries have been received for the rowing eventsAlaiden Double Sculls, seven crews; Youths’ Fours, eight; Junior Double Sculls, six; Alaiden Fours, eight; Senior Double Sculls, three; Junior Fours, six; Maiden Pairs, six; Senior Fours, four; Ynnths’ Pairs, seven; L’ght-weight Alaiden Fours, six; Junior Pairs, six. It will thus be seen that very good entries have been received for all rowing events. The .entries for sailing and motor boat races are also very good, and in every way the regatta promises to be most successful. The proceeds are being divided equally between the Belgian relief fund and the local patriotic fund. As there is no prize money this year, the competitors accepting certificates, a substantial amount should be secured for the above worthy objects. Instead of having tickets to admit to the wharves and flagship, the committee have enlisted the services of the ladies, who will sell patriotic bodges, which will ■■ admit to the wharves and flagship, and we are confident that tho ladies will take care that no man is without a .patriotic bodge onßoxmg.Day.
