1926 APBA Gold Cup
A Big Fleet in the Gold Cup Race
This year's race for the coveted Gold Cup, which was held over the Manhasset Bay course, August 21st and 22nd, brought out a large list of 16 entries, among which were several new boats built especially for this event. Among these may be mentioned the Rowdy, built for Carl S. Fisher by Purdy, and the Rascal, owned by Caleb S. Bragg, who won the cup in the last two races in his Baby Bootlegger. Both of these new boats will represent the Montauk Yacht Club.
