Yesterday Captain Goodrich met Captains Payne Whitney of Yale, and Colson of Cornell, in New York by separate appointment. A conference was arranged and the result was an agreement for a triangular race at New London next summer. The race will probably be rowed some time in Harvard Class Day week, Class Day being June 24, and will be over the new course on the Thames, approved last December as suitable for three crews.
This course is somewhat more crooked than the old. From the start it runs 1 1-2 miles straight-away at which point it is some 400 feet to the west or right of the old course. It then deflects to the east for 3-4 of a mile and thence is 1 3-4 miles straight-away to the finish, which is just north of the Thames River draw bridge. This course offers a depth of water after the first mile varying from 18 to 50 feet.
