(The final heat speeds are on average 5 m.p.h. faster than in the preliminary heats and thus are very suspect. In contrast the preliminary heat speeds are commensurate with past performances for almost every entry. Miss Supertest II's fast lap of 100.953 was in the final heat and thus is suspect. Canadian Boating claimed a lap of 109 m.p.h. for Supertest, but the Windsor Star admitted that no precise lap by lap records were kept for the regatta.)
