YACHTING Last Sunday's Racing TRIBUTE TO HANDICAPPER (Contributed) [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian — 4 March 1948
YACHTING ? « ? Last Sunday's Racing TRIBUTE TO HANDICAPPER (Contributed) Yachting enthusiasts were provided with an exciting race when the weekly fixtures of the Geraldton Yacht Club were continued ou Sunday last. This was the fifth race of the season aiid there was considerable speculation as to the possible outcome of the event in view of the fact that on this occasion ! only two minutes separated the limit ! and scratclf boats, as against nine .minutes on the previous Sunday. The result of the race and the competitive sailing witnessed during the afternoon t was pleasing to spectators and served to justify the action of the handicap per, who, unfortunately, is the target for much thoughtless criticism. The closer grouping of the boats, in addi tion to making the race more interest ing, had the effect of requiring better racing from the limit and intermediate craft. A misfortune in the last lap after she had given a splendid performance resulted in Naiad retiring with the chain-pl...

Fre-tested cord ensures safety of GOODYEAR TYRES You may not know it. but tyre cord can he as variable as the weather. Heat, cold, dampness and dryness can all affect the strength of a tyre curd. To protect your investment in tyres — and perhaps your life — Goodyear has the intricate machine shown above. This machines tests cords in temperatures ranging from 20°F. below to 400° F. above zero. It stretches and strains cord that's soaking wet, and the same cord bone dry. Unless the cord can withstand the Goodyear breaking test under all these conditions, il isn't good enough for you, or for Goodyear. Perhaps that helps to explain why Goodyear tyres hold their place as the world's first choice for the 33rd consecutive year. * ? .' Snapshots !
