Racing craft of all classes–– star, 'R', sloops, yawls, nine-meters, and the rest ––assembled at Seattle this week for the Annual Pacific International Regatta. 
      Canada was well represented in the program of races and won the principal contest for the Lipton Cup –– when the LADY PAT of Victoria, Royal Yacht Club bested entries from Vancouver, B.C., and Seattle. Good sailing winds favored the racers at all times during the three-day meeting.
