A Sailing Match took place on Tuesday last, in this port, between two boats belonging to British brigs.

The Match was for a dinner, which was "served up" on Wednesday at McGaw's Hotel, to a party of about 20 persons. We feel some pleasure in recording this Regatta, as in a port like B. Ayres, where the Masters of vessels experience so much anxiety, a recreation like this is some relief; besides which these scenes

“Sometimes contain a deal of fun,
Like mourning coaches when the funeral's done.”
