  • Description

    THE TWO BRITISH YACHTS, "SOVEREIGN" AND "KURREWA V" HAVE BEGUN THEIR FINAL SERIES OF TRIAL RACES OFF NEWPORT, RHODE ISLAND, TO DECIDE WHICH OF THEM WILL CARRY THE FLAG IN THE AMERICA'S CUP RACES THIS YEAR.

    THE FIRST SERIES, WHICH ENDED ON AUGUST 17, WAS WON BY "SOVEREIGN". SHE WON FOUR OUT OF THE SIX RACES. IN YESTERDAY'S FIRST RACE OF THE SECOND SERIES "SOVEREIGN" LED BY ONE MINUTE TWENTY NINE SECONDS AT THE FIRST MARKER. SHE KEPT THE LEAD FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE RACE TO WIN BY ONE MINUTE, THIRTY TWO SECONDS.

    FILMING FROM THE AIR, A CAMERAMAN SHOT THIS FILM AS THE TWO YACHTS RACED ACROSS THE COURSE -- THEIR SPINNAKERS MAKING A COLOURFUL PICTURE OFF THE NEWPORT COAST.

    (MEANWHILE IN THE FINAL AMERICAN TRIALS, "CONSTELLATION" SCORED HER THIRD WIN ON END OVER "AMERICAN EAGLE". HER TIME WAS FOUR AND A QUARTER MINUTES BETTER THAN THE OTHER AMERICAN YACHT.)
