MILFORD HAVEN REGATTA. The annual Regatta, which has been a local in- stitution since the days of Lord Nelson, and a red letter day in the town's calendar, came off on Mon- day under the-most propitious circumstances. The weather was delightfully fine, with a slashing breeze from the s.s.w., well calculated to try to the utmost the sea-going qualities of the competing boats. The excellent band of the A Company 1st V.B.W.R. played a choice selection of music, and the day's proceedings closed with a grand display of fireworks. The following are the results of the races:- FIRST-CLASS YACHT RACE, not exceeding 25 tons. -1st, £15, Vanessa, E. H. Bath 2nd, i:5, Queen, H. W. Davies.
