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.

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

Unfortunately he said the trustees refused so missed their opportunity.

 

Painting :

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

As for Cutty Sark, 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.

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

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

I  visited Cutty Sark with my own children.
