The 55.5m/182ft classic schooner Adela, with refit design by Dykstra Naval Architects and remodelling work by the Pendennis Shipyard, has undergone further remodelling work by Pendennis Shipyard.
Dykstra Naval Architects is currently conducting an in-house study on how best to augment her all-round performance. The sail plan has been modified on several occasions in the past, and the idea now is to replace her roached sail plan with square-head main and foresail. With the planned increase in sail area, further studies are being made to reduce weight while maintaining stability, possibly by increasing the draught or adding trim tabs, daggerboards or centreboards. Adela is expected to return to Pendennis Shipyard for the remodelling and refit work.
