Designed by Philip Rhodes and built by Casey of Fairhaven in 1930. In any race it is the winner that gets all the plaudits while the runner up is consigned to history. So it was on the 1931 Transatlantic Race when 8 yachts started from Newport en route to the finish line at Plymouth. The race was won by the 48’ Sparkman and Stephens yawl Dorade but the runner up was the 50’ Philip Rhodes design, Skal, which in so many ways is a more interesting yacht. To start with she is a gaff cutter which even in 1931 was already an old fashioned rig. However it is a more powerful off-wind rig therefore considered to be better suited to this passage.

Philip Rhodes was one of the most respected prolific marine architects in the USA with many famous yacht designs still sailing today. His designs included the 12m Weatherly which won the 1962 Americas Cup, little day sailers, commercial vessels and motor vessels from launches to minesweepers for the US Navy. By 1948 he was in on the early development of grp for hull construction with the Rhodes 18 sloop and although Skal’s gaff rig was probably old fashioned by the time she was built it was probably chosen for it’s more effective performance in a reaching race. By the 1960’s Rhodes was running a large design office and remained the inspiration of the company’s work up to his last design in 1970.
