Ferreira” departed Falmouth with an ignominious cargo of scrap iron.

Captain Waite was previously a Captain of the British India Steam Navigation Company.  As a master mariner Captain Waite was quick to read the sea pattern, saying I’d got the waves just right for the currents around Falmouth.

I have a long association with “Cutty Sark” first visiting with a school outing when aged about 7.

Years later I took my children onboard the  Cutty Sark.
