Daffodil was the first bermudan rigged staysail schooner to be built in U.K. and one of the largest and elegance designs of Norman E. Dallimore. His Daffodil design was a good example of his innovative flair. She was a staysail schooner, built in 1928, the same year that the American “Nina” won the Transatlantic and Fastnet races and drew attention to this rig, so Dallimore’s design was quite a novelty.
