ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the annual model-sailboat regatta held at the Conservatory Lake in Central Park in New York. Five of the six races for boats are classified from Class A to Class E sizes. The winners were presented with trophies by Jeanne E. Kerbs, sponsor of the regatta. A chairman of the regatta committee decided to disqualify the yawl and instead, proclaim a pirate schooner as the first place winner.
