Castle Yacht Club: This club had fine weather, with a hard south-westerly breeze, for their matches in the Solent classes on Monday. There was a large attendance of the members of the club and friends at the club-house to witness them. Luna proved that she is a good hard-weather boat, and she fairly beat all in her class, while Inyoni again showed signs of tenderness, as did Asphodel, in which her owner sailed. The 20-raters were much better represented than the other classes, but the sport was poor. Match for yachts over 18 and not over 20-rating. The entries were: – Deirdré, 20, Earl of Lonsdale; Asphodel, 20, Prince Henry of Battenberg; Luna, 20, Nr. L. B. Jameson; Dragon, 20, Earl of Dunraven; Inyoni, 20, Earl of Dudley; Thelma, 20, Mr A. B. Walker. These six started with housed topmasts and reefed mainsails. They had a run to the first mark, which they rounded in close order, Inyoni leading, with Luna next, then Asphodel, Thelma, Deirdré and Dragon. Leaving the mark it was a beat to windward, and in the second tack Thelma had to give up, owing to carrying away her bobstay plate. After Cowes harbour had been past it was a reach, and then Luna went with the lead, and Asphodel was left last. In the run from the western mark, Asphodel headed Deirdré in the broad reach, but before they had hauled round the Calshot Spit lightship Prince Henry’s boat was again last. In the second round the wind was somewhat lessened, and all sported gaff topsails save Asphodel and Inyoni, which sailed without them. Dragon gave up in the beat to Lepe, and went into Cowes Roads. The others completed the race as follows:- Luna, winner, 3h 24m 4s; Inyoni, second prize, 3h 29m 18s; Deirdré, 3h 31m 5s; Asphodel, 3h 32m 18s.

Tribute to Late Deputy Chief Constable. – In St Vigeans Church on Sunday reference was made to the death of Mr William Smith, Cliffdene, Cliffburn Road, former deputy Chief Constable of Arbroath. “We have lost a member of the kirk session and a very dear friend,” said the Rev. Charles E. Duff. “I had known Mr Smith intimately for over 30 years, and I feel it to have been a great privilege to call him friend. Mr Smith was ordained an elder in St Vigeans in September 1936, and he fulfilled his duties with the utmost fidelity. He was a most regular attender at church, and he set an example to all of what an elder ought to be. His gentleness, his kindly smile, his untiring service and unfailing loyalty, and that greatest quality of all which we need not hesitate to call by its proper name, love, all make us realise acutely in this hour of sorrow that it will be very difficult to replace him. Few such men are given to the Church, and their loss is irreparable. We think of our friend to-day as not far away. We turn again to life and take up the tasks which he laid down.”
