The S Class was commissioned by Seawanhaka Corinthian Y.C., Oyster Bay, NY. She was designed by N.G. Herreshoff. Being developed as a one-design class, it was also eligible to compete with an 'S Class' handicap as defined by the Universal Rule. At last report (2006) at least 70 were still sailing.
The S-Class Sloop was designed by Nathanael Greene Herreshoff late in 1919 and comprises one of the most significant one-design racing classes of the era. They are revered by their owners for their responsive helm, for their ability to stand up to a breeze, and for their ability to ghost along in light air.The S Boat has a five-eighths rig and a powerful sail plan consisting of a self-tending jib, a main and a spinnaker. The 42-foot spruce mast is tapered, hollow, and curved. The running backstays and overhanging boom carry about 426 square feet of sail and provide a thrilling ride. The cockpit is comfortable and reasonably dry, and there is a small cabin for protection from the weather and storage.
