All started, Allegro leading across the line 16sec. after the gun was fired, Major being 20sec. further astern. Iphisaurus stopped between the guns and was 36min. 17sec. late over the line. There was a nice breeze south-east by east drawing westerly at the start, and the sea was very smooth. The course is 175 sea miles. Allegro finished yesterday morning at 6h. 56min. 32sec., winning the British Motor Boat Club’s cup for first boat in. Major finished at 7h. 10min. 8sec., and won the Edge cup on time allowance. Major’s time allowance was 50min. 20sec.
