B.O.R.C. AT HENDON AGAIN

T , HE meeting of the British Outboard Racing Club at the Welsh Harp, Hendon, on Saturday the 14th June, opened amid brilliant sunshine,

but a very meagre attendance of spectators.

The performances put up were by no means as good as:those of the previous meeting, as not only were the engines difficult to start but in many cases, once they had started, they petered out within a very short time. The first event—” C” Class Open Race—passed off quite happily and was won by C. T. Lewis’s J ” with which he was later to win three other races. There were a number of retirements in the second race. Peter Godfrey’s “Blue Peter,” IV. and R. D. Weatherell’s ” Itsit XII.” failed during the trials previous to the race. “Erb

I.” threw its pilot—H. A. Edwards out and then performed a series of evolutions on its own account whilst its owner was battling with the waters of the Welsh Harp. This race Was another win for Lewis’s ” J ” this time by 211aps.

In event 4 Unlimited Class Open Race, 5 nautical miles, all the boats, with the exception of W. G. Boyer’s ” Jill II.,” gave up the ghost in the trials and thus this boat was the only one left to compete. Whilst ” Jill ” was making the course alone, Weatherell’s ” Itsit IX.” picked up and did some very fast racing on the straight. „.4.After the tea interval which then followed, “Trump ,” -driven by Harold Allchiu, was going exceedingly well but had atrocious bad luck in the last lap. The last two races provided some more good sport and continuous interest to the end of the afternoon’s proceedings.
