1909 Frontenac Regatta

Onion II Wins Silver Cup

Special to the New York Times

Frontenac, N.Y., Aug 14—In to-day’s finals of the motorboat races, which began under the auspices of the Frontenac Yacht Club yesterday, Onion II, owned by Ira Kip Jr., of Orange, N.J., took the silver loving cup in the event for boats not over 37 feet. The event, which was decided by points, was won yesterday by the Moike, F. G. Bourne, of New York, but to-day the Moike finished second, tying for the cup. Louis Bourne refused to race off the tie, and the race final accordingly went to the Onion.

The Pirate, owned by Roland Peacock, won the free-for-all to-day, defeating the Jam and the M.L.H. The Duquesne, winner of yesterday’s free-for-all, cracked a shaft to-day. Thus the Pirate, which finished second yesterday, won the finals with the Jam, owned by G. S. Hasbrouck, second. Pirate’s time to-day was 45:57 for twenty-one miles.
