END OF THE CONTEST. TENBY'S POSITION. The contest run by The Weekly Dispatch during the present summer, vhich began on May 28th and continued to the evening of September 23rd, has resulted in Falmouth heading the south coast with a record of 947.6 hours, Douglas the west coast with 831.0 hours, and Felixstowe-the east coast with 743 hours. Tenby, which was included in the West Coast Section of the race, occupied eigth position, having gradually. worked its way up from twelfth place, where it was in the early stages of the contest. For the week ending September 32rd Tenby had 32.6 hours of sunshine to its credit, its total for the season being 689.3 hours, which represented an increase of 33 hours on ita best previous sunshine record. It beat Porthcawl, Llandudno, Oban, Weston- super-Mare, and Aberystwyth, the latter being at the bottom of the list. Taking the broken weather of June, July, and August into account the competition has certainly served a useful purpose in showing where the least unsettled weather may occur under certain conditions. The only complaint comes from Bournemouth, where an official complains that the newspaper records for Falmouth differ from those of the Meteorological Office. In this connection it is worth noting that there are two stations at Falmouth,* and the one accepted is that of the Falmouth Borough Council Climatological station in Basset Street, where the records are kept by Mr R. H. Brenton. In all towns we take the records of the local authority, and there is no reason why we should make an exception in the case of Falmouth. Consider- ing the shortening days, the week's record was one of the best of the summer. In the south Ventnor made a big jump of four places in a final effort, heading the list with a splendid average of over nine hours a day. Falmouth, in winning, had a record of over fifty hours above any other place, and a close race between Eastbourne and Torquay for second position ended in favour of the former by three and a half hours. In the west Douglas was very nearly as easy a winner as Falmouth in the south, and Weston-super-Mare made the best return for the week. Felixstowe had We greatest local victory in the east, headiig Ramsgate, the runner-up, by no less tlan sixty-four hours. Herne Bay finished he season very well with the best record for -he week.
