• Short Summary

    Speedboats and yachts compete in separate races off the coast of Miami.

  • Description

    Titles read: "SEA MOSQUITOS!"

    Miami, Florida, United States of America.

    Various shots of men on small speedboats zooming over the water off the coast of Miami, in the race for the President's Cup. Commentator says the competitors are all from the Californian coast (so why are they competing in Florida?). We then see several shots of yachts competing in a race for the Wilson Trophy.

    Cataloguer's note: commentator pronounces Miami as 'Mee-army', as he does in several other stories - can't someone tell him?!
