Text Appearing After Image:
The international competi-tions for the possession of theAmericas cup, which unfortu-nately was not sailed forthis year, greatly intensi-fied the interest taken, onboth sides the Atlantic,in the performances ofprominent yachts. Everyrace in which the This-tle figured during the firstpart of the season of 1887 was keenlywatched, in order to estimate the pos-sible chances of a cup defender.

A. rule, N. Y. Y. C. rule,Sailing length by 90.41 69.64 . . . 15.90 . . . 11.6
