Monaco will be the Mecca for the motorboat enthusiasts of all Europe during the time between April 1 and 13, and an examination of the list of entries will show that this year's meeting should produce some fast ones in her class. And interest, so far as American motorboatists are concerned, centers upon the new British racer Wolseley-Siddeley, which was built for the avowed purpose of regaining, if possible, the British International Trophy, won by Dixie in 1907. Wolseley-Siddeley is up against some fast ones in her class, and by her achievement in Monaco we will be given an opportunity to judge of her capabilities. With her 400-h. motors the British speed marvel should be able to cut a wide swath upon the classic waters of the Mediterranean.

A number of entries in every class warrants the prediction of a successful meeting, and the class of boats which will participate assures excellent results, so far as speed is concerned. The Monaco course was remeasured after last year's meeting, and the published results this year should be more accurate than last.

April 1 and 2 are the days set aside for the Monaco Motorboat Exhibition; the racing will begin on April 6 and will continue until the 13th.
