Notes

Commissioned by Seawanhaka Corinthian YC, (Long Island, NY) for one-design racing and delivered beginning in 1916. More were built by Herreshoff until the late 1920's.
Over the years, a number of reproductions have been built based on this original design. The drawing here shows the 'marconi' sloop version adopted in the 1930's.
