Race Week of the Motorboat Club of America

Motorboat racing in Huntington Bay will be resumes to-day, the events being the only series of competitions that the Motorboat Club of America has been able to arrange, with the exception of the international trophy race, for its proposed carnival week of racing. Over a dozen entries had been received last night by the Regatta Committee for the races. The U.S.A., which was one of the American representatives in the international event, and the old XPDNC, now owned by Jacob Siegel and which won the first Hudson River race from New York to Poughkeepsie and back, will be among the starters in the speed events. The total list of entries for to-day's events is:

U.S.A., John Shepperd, Riverton Yacht Club; Scioto, George C. Sutton, Bergen Beach; XPDNC, Jacob Siegel, Red Bank; Macon, Fred H. Tucker, New York Motorboat Club, Marie, Aymer Johnson, South bay Yacht Club; Durno II, J. H. Durno, Rochester; Edith, B. A.
