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.

 

 

 

On-board Cutty Sark, exhibited at the request of her then Captain, Simon Waite.

 

Two years later, and as a direct result of the accident that took her off her course, in distress into Falmouth for self 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 for the look and feel of the original, signed, numbers,

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

 

I have a long association with “Cutty Sark“.

I last visited Cutty Sark with my own children.
