BOATING—SKIP ALLAN, sailing out of the Newport Harbor Yacht Club, skippered his father's Holiday, Too to the National Cal-40 championship for the second consecutive year when he scored two firsts and a second in rough water and a 20-knot blow off Long Beach, Calif.
Bolero, Mrs. Charles M. White's 73-foot yawl from Huntington, L.I., crossed the finish line first and had the best corrected time in the Storm Trysail Club's Block Island race, but lost the trophy when a protest for a starting line infraction was upheld by race officials. John B. Kilroy's KIALOA II, a 73-footer out of Newport Beach, Calif. was moved up from second and became the first California yacht to win the 21-year-old Block Island event.
BOXING—"I'm tired and must decide my future plans later," said Brazil's Eder Jofre after he failed in his attempt to regain the world bantamweight title he lost a year ago to Japan's FIGHTING HARADA. The 23-year-old Japanese who beat Jofre won the world flyweight title at age 19 to become the youngest world titleholder ever. Harada, who has a pro record of 41 wins, including 17 knockouts, and three losses in two divisions (flyweight and bantamweight) scored a unanimous decision over Jofre, seven years his senior, in their 15-round bout in Tokyo. The defeat was Jofre's second in 74 professional matches.
CHESS—The U.S.S.R.'s TIGRAN PETROSIAN, 36, retained his world championship by defeating Boris Spassky, the 29-year-old challenger, also from Russia, in the crucial 22nd game of a match that began April 11 in Moscow. Petrosian, who took the world championship in 1963 from another Russian, Mikhail Botvinnik, won four games to Spassky's two. All the others ended in draws.
GOLF—BERT YANCEY, 27, a former West Point cadet who plays out of Philadelphia, collected the biggest check ($20,000) of his seven-year professional career when he won the Memphis Open with a 15-under-par 265 over Gene Littler.
HARNESS RACING—"It was the first turn that did it," said Frank Ervin as he drove BRET HANOVER ($3.20) to a three-quarter-length victory in Roosevelt's $50,000 pace. The race was called the Revenge because it was supposed to be a duel between Bret and Cardigan Bay, the New Zealand champion who beat him two weeks ago (page 72). However, Cardigan Bay proved an also-ran and ended up in third place, three-quarters of a length behind Rex Pick, the surprising second-place finisher.
HORSE RACING—Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Kauai King failed in his bid for racing's Triple Crown as Reginald N. Webster's AMBEROID ($13.00), ridden by Bill Boland, ran away with Aqueduct's Belmont Stakes, finishing 2� lengths ahead of King Ranch's surprising Buffle (page 34). Kauai King came in fourth, a neck behind Mrs. Ada L. Rice's Advocator.
In the preceding race, a six-furlong allowance called the Sherluck, Ogden Phipps's BUCKPASSER ($2.80), who might have been eligible for some greater 3-year-old honors if he hadn't suffered a quarter crack in his hoof earlier in the season, won his first start since he took the Flamingo Stakes in March with a two-length victory over Golden Triangle Stables' Tim's Stingray.
Nelcius, an 8-1 shot ridden by Yves Saint-Martin, collected a $160,000 purse when he won the French Derby by 1� lengths over Bon Mot at Chantilly, France.
LACROSSE—NAVY defeated Army 16-7 at West Point to take its seventh straight national championship and complete its third consecutive undefeated season in collegiate competition (page 88). The Middies, who suffered their last intercollegiate loss in 1963 to the Cadets, were beaten once this year (by a single goal), but that was by the more mature team of Baltimore's Mount Washington Lacrosse Club.
