Designers of Two of Rochester's "Big Three" Represented in the Three-Million-Dollar Fleet for America's Cup - - - What Does This Mean ?

Three greyhound yachts in the 8-meter class are now built or building fox tile honor of representing Rochester Y. C. against Canada in the races for Uanada's Uub tins August. Simultaneously, down east, four of the largest singlestickers ever built are rusbing to completion for the honor of representing New York Y. C. as defender of the historic .rlmerica's Gap, against that traditional friendly-enemy, Sir Thomas Lipton, in September. Both series will be sailed in American waters America being the challenged party in both cases--the Canada's series off Rochester; tbe America's on the eastern end of its actual ~alue as so much silver bullion is not great-about $500 original cost. What makes it historically beyond price is the tradition surrounding the contests for its possession, covering the past 30 years, and its significance as the emblem of yachting supremacy between America and Canada on the Great Lakes. (Unlike the America's Cup races, Canada's are intense!3 amateur in all respects of skippers, crews, and the whole spirit of the contests.) Both invading boats will be truly British in every detail of design, rig, ownership and handling, gikewisei both defenders a,e just its distinctively American.

Mr. Farley's choice of a designer for "Conewago" in Olin J. Stephens is based on the reputation Stephens acquired in the smaller classes such as those demanded by the rules pertaining to the Canada's Cup boats. His 6-meter "Thalia" was the sensation of the Eastern seaboard last season, and is entered for the bi~ ~ races off Bermuda this spring. The fact that such designers have interested themselves in designing boats for the Canada's Cup requirements, is emphasized here to impress on the non-yachting public of Rochester the world-

wide significance of this August regatta, which is to take place in our own waters.

What Does "8-Meter" Mean?

You will hear this phrase, "8-meter," a heap-plenty before summer is over. May as well make a mental note that it refers to the class in which this year's Canada's Cup boats are built under

the present International rtde. It means a boat of somewhere between 45 and 50 ft., overall length, and in the neighborhood of

Judge John D. L'vnn r ....... G. Mabt~ett Harry A. May

30 ft. waterline.

The modern 8-meter boat, with its sky-scraping spar and triangular Marconi rig, looks and performs very differently from Cup boats of yester-year. In a future issue we hope to give you a little summary of the features of design and rig that distinguish the new type.
