Wasp was a new forty-six foot sloop designed by Nathanael Herreshoff for Archibald Rogers. Harpoon was designed by Edward Burgess and was sailed by the Adams brothers. Gloriana was also designed by Herreshoff and was a spoon-bowed sloop of light composite construction. After winning all of the eight races entered in 1891 she was retired for the season to allow others a chance. Wasp was similar to Gloriana, but was the first yacht with a fully-developed lead bulb keel.
Another Corinthian Yacht Club trophy from this race made by Whiting and bearing the same inscription and date was sold Sotheby's New York, January 21-22, 2011, lot 128.
