In the first class, E. S. Abbot, '87, and E. J. Proctor, '87, and in the second class, U. Dunham, '85, and E. L. Rand, R. G., started. The first class boats were sent off a minute before the second class, at 10.56. There was a very light breeze blowing, and for a long time the conoes did not move perceptibly, but finally Rand began to forge ahead, with Dunham close behind. By good luck in catching puffs, Rand managed to get a good lead, and went the rounds twice before the others had completed their first circuit. His time for the three miles was 1 hour 50 minutes. In the meantime Proctor and Dupham made a close and very interesting race for second place. Abbot soon fell way behind and withdrew. Proctor finally came in ahead of Dunham half an hour after Rand.
Prizes consisting of pewter cups were awarded to the winners in each class. Mossrs. Rand, first class, and Proctor, second class.
