ADIX

Very much in keeping with the visiting Fife classic yachts currently on the Clyde, the appearance of the three-masted schooner ADIX is a little deceptive. She is a relatively new vessel, built in Spain in 1984 and originally named JESSICA. When new, she was square rigged on her foremast, and was also shorter. In 1991 she was given a major refit, which included lengthening, at the Pendennis Shipyard at Falmouth and as a result ADIX is now 64.9 metres long. Her masts are made of an aluminium alloy, while her booms and gaffs are timber-clad carbon fibre.
