CHESTER BOATMEN'S JUBILEE REGATTA. A Jubilee regatta organised by Mr. Storr, managing director of the Chester Boat Company, was held on the river Dee on Wednesday. Great interest was manifested in the event by the watermen who participated in it, and it is hoped to make the regatta an annual one, and throw it open to all the watermen employed in the Groves. The course was from the Waterworks corner to the Suspension Bridge, about half a mile, and some exciting races were witnessed. The arrangements in connection with the event were admirably carried out by Mr. A. Taylor. Details: SCULLS (FINAL): E. Arthur v. J. Smith.—A good race to Cook and Arthur's, when Smith, losing his sliding seat, allowed Arthur to gain half-a-lengtb, he ultimately winning by that distance. PAIRS (FINAL) S. Smith v. J. Green's Crew. —Green dashed of with the faster stroke and gained a slight advantage, but Smith, keeping a long swinging stroke, wore his opponents down, and spurting at the boathouse won a good race by a length. FOURS (FINAL) Green's v. S. Smith's crew.— This was a good race to the Royals' boathouse, but both crews were as near as possible level, owing to the coxswains rounding the bend too wide. The oars clashed, and a foul being claimed the umpire (Mr. Storr) ordered the crews to row again the following evening. In the postponed race on Thursday evening both crews raced level to the Royal Chester boat- house, when Smith made a spurt and forging ahead finished a winner by half-a-length. EIGHTS (FiNAL).-These were made up of all the competitors, two crews stroked respectively by S. Smith and E. Arthur, and resulted in a good race, both crews being level at the boat- house, but Smith's crew lasting the longest won a good race by 8ft. The prizes were distributed to the winning crews immediately after the last race by Mr. Storr. who had kindly officiated as umpire from the company's electric launch Volta. He addressed a few remarks to each prize-winner, hoping he would make good use of the money his crew had won, and so merit the support of the subscribers in the future.—Mr. Walter Cook proposed a vote of thanks to the Royal Chester R.C. members, for their kindness in granting the use of their boats, also for the members' generous support financially; also to Mr. Taylor for his trouble in starting the crews and interest in the arrangements. The whole of the competitors sat down to a cold collation in the R.C.R.C. committee-room, before and after the racing, to which they appeared to do full justice.
