RACING IN THE CAMBER

A FORTHCOMING 100-MILES RACE HAVING little to do on a Sunday recently I decided in an unenthusiastic moment to attend an outboard race to be held in the Camber at Dover Harbour. Racing was due to commence at 12.30 p.m., a peculiar zero hour governed by the departure of the motor car ferry, T.S.S. Forde. The prospect of lifting boats into the water in an unlaunched condition and under a quite warm sun was not a happy one, but one had forgotten the ingenuity of the East Kent people. They had their craft swung complete into the water by the crane which usually slings the cars about. The facilities, the weather and most of all the course,

deserved a better entry, but in spite of there being only three boats in the unlimited race, the scrap between Taylor’s “Wave Crest” and Allen’s “Red Devil “. was the finest I have seen since the death of the hydroplane. “Wave Crest ” eventually won by about half-alength overtaking ” Red Devil” just before the last buoy. It is, therefore, with much pleasure that I learn that the East Kent Motor Yacht Club have arranged with the authorities (the Camber is Admiralty owned), to hold the 100 mile race for the Philip Turner cuij*in the Camber, with possible excursions in the outer harbour. Further note, silencers are a not at premium.—M.
