The Great Race, Tashmoo and City of Erie, June 1901
The greatest sporting event on the lakes took place on Lake Erie between the Tashmoo and City of Erie. Fortunes were wagered on the outcome, won by the City of Erie with a 45 second lead. The 100 mile course ran between Cleveland, Ohio and Erie, Pennsylvania, and was watched by huge crowds from both cities. Three kites flown by a judges boat show the City of Erie was the winner.
