Cutty Sark Sailing Ships

 

Among the most famous old sailing ships still intact, Cutty Sark was one of the last clippers built for the China tea in Dumbarton England in 1869., her hull was of composite construction, with teak planking on iron frames. She never beat her chief rival, Thermopylae, on the passage home from China. Sailed the China tea trade until 1873. She then embarked upon twenty years of passages between England and Australia. After 1895 she served under the Portuguese flag for twenty-five years. She now belongs to the Thames Nautical Training College and she stands tall and proud in a dry dock at Greenwich in London.
