WHITE STAR

 

The White Star soon proved herself to be one of the fastest ships afloat. One her first voyage she did nothing out of the way, being 79 days out and 88 days home. But in 1856, she went out in 75 days (67 days land to land), and came home in 76 days, beating the auxiliary Royal Charter by 10 days from port to port. In 1858, she went out in 72 days, this being the best White Star passage of the year; while on the 25th of February, 1860, she left Melbourne and made her number off Cape Clear in 65 days. In 1860 she went out in 69 days, running 3306 miles in 10 days between the Cape and Melbourne
