Entries for the Monaco meeting, to be held April 1 to 16, have been finally announced, and make a notable list. in all, they number 90, of which 22 are classed as racers, 52 as cruisers, 12 are vedettes or naval picket boats, and 4 are hydroplanes. Four countries are represented -- France, Italy, England and Switzerland -- the French boats, of course, predominating.

Chief among the racing boats is Antoinette IV, whose motor equipment is that remarkable 24-cylinder 360-h machine shown at the Paris show last Winter and described in The Motor Boat of January 10, 1907. Other high-powered boats include Mendelssohn IV, with a 500-h Mutel, Panhard-Tellier, two 100-h Panhards; Jeanette, two 120-hp Itala motors, and San Giorgio, Which will have four 80-h Napier motors. Particulars are lacking of many of the most interesting boats, for in no other event is the policy of secrecy carried to such an extreme as in connection to this meeting.

While the racing boats are classified according to length only, there is a limitation to the cylinder capacity in the cruising classes besides the length limitation. Criticism of this feature has been made in the past, but the large number of entries bearing the names of well-known makers of motors and hulls would seem to prove that it works no general dissatisfaction. That the new class for hydroplanes has attracted four entries, shows the interest in this most advanced type of racing machines and the performances of the gliding boats will be awaited with great interest. The first week of the meeting will be devoted to the exhibition, which will be held on the grounds of the Casino, and the second week will be devoted to the races. The complete list of entries follows:
