  • Description

    BRITAIN'S POSSIBLE CHALLENGER FOR THE AMERICA'S CUP, "SOVEREIGN", BEAT HER OLD RIVAL "SCEPTRE" IN ANOTHER RACE TODAY (SUNDAY) IN WEYMOUTH BAY. THE RACE WAS RUN IN EXCITING WEATHER, WITH HEAVY SEAS AND A GALE-FORCE WIND.

    AT THE HALF-WAY STAGE, "SOVEREIGN" TRAILED BY ABOUT FIFTEEN SECONDS, BUT WITH FORCE FIVE WESTERLY WINDS TO HANDLE, SHE CREPT UP ON THE HOMEWARD RUN AND WON COMFORTABLY BY ALMOST TWO MINUTES.

    THERE WILL BE MORE TRIALS TOMORROW AND OVER THE NEXT WEEKEND. "SOVEREIGN" HAS TAKEN ON "SCEPTRE" FOR A SERIES OF RACES, AND ALTHOUGH "SOVEREIGN" HAS BEEN GOING WELL, HER OWNER IS STILL NOT SATISFIED ABOUT THE SETTING OF HER SAILS AND THEIR HANDLING AT PRESENT.
