(The President's Cup was begun in 1926 under the rules of the Dodge Memorial Trophy. The width of the entry had to be equal to the square 1 root of its length. The engine of the entry had to have a cubic inch displacement limited by the length of the boat cubed divided by 25. In 1928 nevertheless the President's Cup went the way of the Gold Cup. When the President's Cup came back in 1929 it generally followed the rules of the Gold Cup.)
