Original class name is LONG ISLAND SOUND INTERCLUB.
The result of efforts made by a group headed by Carroll B. Alker of the Seawanhaka Corinthian YC and developed for racing on Long Island Sound.
In 1938, a significant number of the original boats were sold to residents at Lake George NY, where organized racing is said to have continued until the late 1950's.
