Gordon Frickers on Cutty Sark with Captain Waite

‘Last Departure’.

The old Portuguese ship “Ferreira” departing Falmouth, her last departure with a ignominious cargo, scrap iron.

It looked like the last chapter in a story that at one time had been glorious, her time was almost ‘up’; it was not.

Two years later, and as a direct result of the accident that took her off her course, in distress into Falmouth for repairs, under tow she returned to Falmouth Docks to be reborn, to become again, a bright star on all our lives.

Today millions of us know that elegant but shabby old ship “Ferreira” by her original name, “Cutty Sark“.

There is a lesson and inspiration in there for us all is there not?

By the way ‘Last Departure’ is available as a print, on canvas, signed, numbers,

The former “Cutty Sark” is shown here making her last departure from a port as a commercial ship.

The artist Gordon Frickers has a long association with “Cutty Sark“.

He last visited Cutty Sark with his own children.
