in the function has heen on the wane, and
the attendances have not been up to ex-

it was smaller. An unpleasantly warm

river. The regattas of the present day

the sailing craft to a large extent that has
caused a loss of interest. Good sport was
provided by the committee' on Monday,
in which they worked. They have the
no fault of theirs that greater interest
in the regatta was hot shown by the pub-
the Birkenhead side of the river, but they
did not appear to be as numerous as on
former occasions. A number are
now engaged in the flux trade
in Spencer's Gulf, and others were
away in connection with other
work. Still those that were in harbor did
not provide a poor display. With awnings
above their decks and family groups bask-
ing beneath, and buntting freely displayed,
they provided a good picture. Those on
board looked happy and contented, de-
spite the heat: - In the new dock the sail-
ing vessels, with bunting flying from the
mastheads down, the steamer Port Elliot,
lying at Mavlaren wharf, with a line of
bunting running from her bow to her fore-
mast head, across to her mizzenmast, and
then to her stern; the flagship, Benlarig
gaily bedecked with flags; and other ves-
sels moored in different parts of the Port,
also dressed in bunting, made the Port
look gay; and the several small sailing
craft, which glided here and there about
the stream, and also the many rowing
boats, provided an animated scene. Greasy
poles hung from barges over the water,
about which a score of youngsters with
sun-scorched backs, and oblivious of the
fear of being drowned, disported them-
selves, and provided amusement for on-
lookers. The committee engaged the Ben-
larig (Captain Mancke) as flagship at the
last moment, and she suited their purpose
admirably, and was well patronised
throughout the day! The Adelaiae Steam-
ship Company's steamer Ferret (Captain
W: Crocker) was used as a committee ship,
and could hardly have been bettered.

A long and interesting programme of
aquatic events was carried out during the
day. The breeze was very light, and in
addition to the competing yachts a num-
patronised by competitors, and the con-
tests, especially the sailing and oar races
were keenly contested and provided an
interesting sight for the spectators. Owing
to lack of entries a few events were omit-
ted. The comic element was not neglect-
ed, and amusement was provided in the
plank and paddle, wooden horse, and boat
music on the grotesquely decorated boats.
First CIass Sailing Race (Handicap).— Open to
all boats not less than 20 ft. overall; no restric-
tion as to sails. Course from flagship, round
dock entrance, round south powder buoy, and
£3; third,- £2. Maggie, C . D. Tassie (7 min.);
Tern, W. T. Angove (3 min.); Geisha, A. Rymill
(scr.); Torment, E. Walters (13 min.).
The competing boats sailed with a light breeze,
the Tern and Geisha leading off in company. Fol-
lowing up a few seconds later was the Torment,
while the Maggie did not get away till 3 seconds
later. The Torment had the advantage of a
larger sail area than the other competitors,- and
soon gained the leading position. The Tern
Geisha, and Maggie, followed in that order, but
the Geisha first negotiated the turn at the south
Torment, and Tern. Running home the Magie
maintained the lead, and was closely followed
by the Geisha and Torment. The Tern returned
and crossed the line ahead of the Torment, great-
ly to the chagrin of the committee, who fired the
gun to announce her victory, when the helmsman
had not even reported her withdrawal. After de-
ducting, time allowances the race resulted: — Tor-
ment, first; Maggie, second; Geisha, third. -.-
Sailing Boat Race (Handicap).— Open to all
classes of boats under 20 ft; no restriction as to
sails.- Course, same as No.1 race. First prize
£3; second, £2; third, £1. Redwing, W. T. An-

S. Warland (12 min.); .Shamrock, T. Boyce (3-
min.); Florrie, J. Rowan (10 min.); Alva, J.G.
McKinley (2 min:): Meteor, J. O. Franson scr.).
The Alva led off, and was followed closely by
the Meteor, who worked up well. The Pinaroo
and Reenic followed close in their wake, and the
Florrie and Shamrock were together, in the rear.
The Redwing was late in starting, and the Florrie
who started before the signal was given, had tohicfw* -
return to the line, with the result that she was
last off. The result was Alva,. first; Meteor, se-
cond: and Shamrock third.
Fjshermen's Sailing Race, (Handicap) Open
to all fishermen's boats; to be sailed by
owners with ordinary sails, and 100 fathoms of
mesh net on 'stern of boat. Course, from flag-

came back close together in the following order:-
Margaret 1, Aurora, 2, May, 3, and Slavonia last.
Youths' Pair Oar Race. -- For youths under unBcf?.
18 years of age; in boats not more

and E. Allen, E. Manson and A.Swinton. At
the first stroke Bishop broke his paddle, and,
"catching a crab" fell heavily into the boat.
Naismith and Allen forged ahead, and kept up
their lead, reaching home several lengths before
Sweeney and Allen; who were second and pulled
hard by Manson and Swinson for third place.
