Maritime History | Sailing Ships | Cutty Sark

One of the fastest tea clippers in the world, the Cutty Sark was built on the Clyde in 1869, and sailed to and from every major port, carrying tea and wool. Her longest serving Master was Captain Woodget, an accomplished photographer and keen cyclist (even on board). Despite her strange name and extraordinary career, this indomitable heroine lives on – as a much-loved museum ship at Greenwich.

About Cathy Shelbourne

My maritime heroes, ships and pirates are my passion! As I travel the world giving talks on cruise ships, I research the ports and places we visit for more information on, and photos relating to, the naval heroes, explorers, circumnavigators, pirates and privateers sailing the world up to five centuries ago.

I'm an experienced speaker, member of Toastmasters International, and frequent finalist in speech contests. I also belong to the Society for Nautical Research, and the Yachting Journalists' Association.
