15 June 1894: Local Yachting News, Mersey. Alex, cutter, 5 tons, Mr J. A. Elgood, is still at New Brighton; she was under way for the week, and was up at Eastham on Sunday afternoon, as also was Chance, cutter, 3 tons, Mr R. E. Bickerton, and Ripple, cutter, 4 tons, Messrs Clarke, who had been for a cruise to Hilbre, as also had Seagull, cutter, 10 tons, Mr F. W. Walmsley, who had a rather incomplete race with Playmate, Hilbre Island Club, in which the latter had rather the best of the argument.

The New Thames Yacht Club. Saturday morning, June 9th, promised badly for yacht-racing, as there was scarcely any wind, and a good deal of rain fell until after 8 o’clock, when it practically ceased. All day long, however, the sky was dull and threatening, whilst throughout the race, which lasted over 8 hours, there was never a really good sailing breeze, and yet in spite of all this and wretched entries the day was full of interest. The only two competitors were Britannia and Satanita, but as the latter had been altered and her sail area had been increased, she was expected by her designer to be faster and to steer better. … The club steamer Oriole was well patronised, and amongst those on board was the Duke of the Abouzzi, the nephew of the King of Italy, who being a naval man took great interest in the day’s sailing. The Commodore of the club, Mr Robert Hewitt, Mr Arcoll and Mr Hansley were the officers of the day, The race was a match for yachts of any rig exceeding 15-rating, Course from Southend to Harwich, leaving the Swin Middle lightship on the starboard hand, all the marks on the Maplins and the Gunfleet, the West Rocks and Cork Sands buoys and the Cork lightship on the port hand, finishing, between the Committee vessel and the inner buoy of the north-west ridge. Time allowance for 50 miles. To be sailed in cruising trim. Y.R.A. rules. Entries: – Britannia, 151, H.R.H. Prince of Wales; Satanita, 171, Mr A. D. Clarke. …

Royal Harwich Yacht Club. There were only two matches on the card at Harwich Regatta on Monday, but a finer racing display could not possibly be witnessed than the battles between Carina and Vendetta. … Match open to all yachts exceeding a rating of 40. Entries were:- Satanita, cutter, 171-rater, Mr A. D. Clarke; Britannia, cutter, 152-rater, the Prince of Wales. … June 12th. There was some interesting and keen racing on Tuesday in the open water outside Harwich, and a fine sailing breeze prevailed throughout the day. Rain squalls kept rising, but the weather was exceedingly pleasant during the intermittent bursts of sunshine. … Match open to all yachts exceeding a rating of 40. Course, from Harwich Harbour, round the Shipwash and the Sunk lightships, and back round the Cork lightship to the committee vessel in habour. Yacht Racing Association time allowance for a 37-knot course. Entries:- Satanita, 171-rating, Mr A. D. Clarke; Britanniam 152-rating, the Prince of Wales. Satanita to allow Britannia 1m. 53s. … Satanista came on with a protest ensign flying, and an objection against Britannia was subsequently lodged, on the ground that Britannia had fouled Satanista in running out to the Bell buoy. The committee having heard the evidence decided that Satanista‘s objection was sustained and disqualified Britannia.

Vice-presidents whose term of office has expired: Mr F. B. Buckland, J.P., Sir F. T. Barry, Bart., M.P., Rev. J. J. Hornby, D.D., his Grace the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rev. E. Warre, D.D., Rev. W.

Brodie, Sir Evan Nepean and Dr. J. Scott.’

‘Windsor Races. Considering that on Sunday night only one horse had arrived at Windsor, fields on Monday panned out exceptionally well. Indeed, in four of the items down for decision, runners were plentiful enough, with the principal event, the Rays Handicap Hurdle Race, attracted fourteen to the post. An inspection of the course at an early hour revealed the fact that the going was in capital order, and there were never any fear the frost would interfere with sport. The Bucks Maiden Hurdle Race was won by Mr H. C. Johnson’s Reservist, the Tower Steeplechase by Mr F. Bishop’s Lyndon Green, the Rays Hurdle Handicap by Mr J. G. Clarke‘s Mark Time, the Monday Maiden Hurdle Race by Mr J. Barnett’s Much Too Early, the Long Walk Steeplechase by Captain C. Gore-Langton’s Squint II., and the Paddock Steeplechase by Mr J. F. Hallick’s Foxhill. The frost having completely given way, the going for the concluding stage of the meeting on Tuesday proved somewhat holding. The light was considerably better than on the first day, as was also the attendance, but racing can hardly be said to have reached the standard usually witnessed at this enclosure, only thirty-three horses taking part in the half-dozen events down for decision. The Tuesday Hurdle Handicap was won by Mr. F. Cobb’s Chiselhamton, the Athens Steeplechase by Mr J. E. Hallick’s Foxhill, the Dorney Steeplechase by Mr H. R. Randall’s Red Hand, the Borough Steeplechase by Mr A. Hamblin’s Perdicus, the Slough Hurdle Handicap by Mr A. Jones’s Jack McCormick, and the Coveney Steeplechase by Mr A. Gorham’s Little Sister II.’

‘Eton Fire Brigade. The annual meeting of the Eton Fire Brigade was held on Friday evening at the Bridge House Hotel, when the majority of the members were present, together with Mr Ingalton Drake and Mr Cecil Howlett, members of the Eton Urban District Council. On the proposition of Mr Hasted, seconded by Mr Westoby, Mr Howlett was voted to the chair. The minutes of the last annual meeting having been past the following report was read by the Hon.

Bennett being second in 52 2/5 seconds. 20 August – Brighton Volunteer Fire Brigade annual drill competitions were held on 31 August at Preston Park. The Brigade was represented in the one-man, two-men, three-men and six-men drills. I regret that Fireman J.

A, Somerville, chairman of the Fire Brigade Committee, and to Mr Councillor Howlett for his untiring energy in the interest of the Fire Brigade, and his special journey to Liverpool and Blackpool to inspect appliances there, accompanied by Escape-Foreman Goddard, to whom I offer my best thanks; also to Hon.

B. Brown, the best thanks of the active members are gratefully tenders … the Governing Body of Eton College per their Bursar, Mr H. C. Holloway-Calthrop, for the munificent gift of the steam fire-engine and part fire-alarm system and fire-escape for use by members of the Brigade … R. G. Dugdale, Chief Officer.” This report was agreed to on the proposition of Mr Plumridge, seconded by Mr Halliday senior. Mr Hetherington asked if the Gamewell system was fully installed, as he thought some members were still not on the system. … There was a contest for the Chief Officership. Mr Bennett proposed, and Mr Halliday seconded, the re-appointment of Mr Dugdale, while Mr Westoby proposed Mr F. E. Goddard, and this was seconded by Mr F. Husted. … Mr Bennett junior championed the cause of their former captain with considerable warmth … Mr Goddard [said] he had felt the unpleasantness of being deemed an undesirable member for holding the escape-foremanship on account of his living out of Eton, although he spent most of the day in the town … He objected to being stabbed in the back, and if any member had anything to say against him let it be said to his face. … Mr Hetherinton thought that as escape-foreman Mr Goddard was the right man in the right place … [Mr Dugdale was re-elected] … The other appointments were:- Foreman, Mr Hetherington; engineer, Mr W. W. B. Hill; escape-foreman, Mr F. E. Goddard; sub-engineer, Mr Bettridge; committee, Messrs Plumridge, Fountain, Goddard, Hill, and Bettridge, while the latter was asked to again take up the duties of canteen steward. … On the proposition of Mr Baker, seconded by Mr Hollyer, a vote of thanks was heartily accorded to Mr Ingalton Drake …’
