Cutty Sark

The new tea clipper “Cutty Sark” and “Themopylae”

Click on the image below to see more detail.


The 2 most famous Tea Clippers hardly need introducing to seamen. If you don’t know them you should!

The artist has a long association with “Cutty Sark” and painted her twice with the full cooperation of Simon Waite who was then her Captain. This version shows her when new, the other in old age, her “Last Departure”.

She is still in the news, being on National TV on the 26th January 2005. Open to the public at Greenwich, London, Cutty Sark is currently the subject of a 12 million pound fund raising project, the most ambitious and high tech to date for an historic ship, to ensure her preservation into well into our future.
