E. J. Schroeder's motor boat Dixie again made the fastest time yesterday over the 30 nautical mile course in the races held off the foot of West 112th Street and the Hudson River, the headquarters of the Motor Boat Club of America, under whose auspices the races were held. The Dixie won in the same class in which she led the previous day, her time being nearly two minutes faster, the course being completed in 1:19:06. In the class for high-speed boats over forty feet, B. M. Baruch's Skedaddle won in fast time, covering the same course in 1:22:10. C. J. Swain's Sparrow won the race for boats of 33 feet and under, her actual time being 1:44:46, but time allowance reduced her corrected time to 1:15:24. The week's races will be concluded with six events to-day.
