Cutty Sark IV
Description: The Cutty Sark is a museum ship in Greenwich London, displayed on a beautiful glass structures and available to teach and educate the public of the tea trade during the age of sale.
Cutty Sark was one of the fastest clippers, built in 1869, right before the introduction of steam propulsion.
The opening of the Suez Canal shortened the route to China, where she was used to import tea to England.
She then turned to the import of wool from Australia.
The ship's figurehead shows Cutty-sark, the nickname of the witch Nannie Dee who chases Tam O'Shanter, snatching his horse's tail before he escapes by crossing water.
