15 June 1894: Clyde Corinthian Yacht Club. … Race 2, for the 10-raters, provided the sensation of the day for the spectators, and the result was another shock to the feelings of patriotic Scotsmen. The entries were Lilith, Sula, Dakotah, Dora, Ptarmigan, and Fenella. Dora being over the rating had to allow the other 10’s 1m. 53s., and the 5-rater Fenella 16m. 43s. The wind in the neighbourhood of the line was very fluky, and there was much keen manœuvring for the best position at the start. All the boats were steered by their owners except Lilith, which was in the capable hands of Mr W. Fife junior, her designer. … In the course of the race a slight foul took place between Dakotah and Lilith, and the owner of the latter intimated his intention to protest, but, after discussing the matter with Mr Allan on board Colonsay, Mr Collins decided not to proceed with it. The times at finish were – Dakotah (winner), 4h. 20m. 26s.; Sula, 4h. 24m. 55s.; Lilith (second prize), 4h. 26m. 45s.; Dora, 4h. 28m. 56s.; Ptarmigan, 4h. 36m. 2s.
