The Cutty Sark is a clipper built in 1869 in Dumbarton (Scotland). He was assigned to the then very lucrative and competitive tea trade with a race around the world to be the first to unite China every year to London. With the opening of the Suez Canal, the clippers were removed from the trade in favor of the first steamships. The Cutty Sark was then destined to trade wool in Australia and subsequently sold in 1895 to a Portuguese company. After more than half a century wandering through Europe and South Africa, was finally bought by the British in 1954, restored and displayed to the public in a dry dock, specially designed in Greenwich (London). The unique elegance of his line, his incredible speed and wealth of its details has made the Cutty Sark a universal legend.
