ALEXANDRIA BAY, N.Y., Aug. 26 --- The gold cup of the American Power Boat Association was won this afternoon at Chippewa Bay by the Chip, the cup defender of the Chippewa Bay Yacht Club, owned by J. H. Wainwright of Philadelphia. She won first place in each heat of the three days' racing meet, making the thirty miles handicap course in the average time of 1 hour and 52 minutes. The boats today finished in the following order: Chip, Chippewa Club; Invelse, Riverton Club; Shooting Star II, Manhasset Bay Club; Flip, Hartford Club; Skeeter, New York Club.

The cup offered by Commodore F. G. Bourne of the New York Yacht Club to the boat making the fastest average time was awarded to the Shooting Star II, owned by H. A. Lozier Jr. of New York, whose average time was twenty-four miles an hour.
