Cutty Sark by John McIlwain
The Cutty Sark is of a bygone era, the exciting days of merchant shipping, when the Great Ship Race from China revealed who would bring the new season's tea crop to England first. This, the official Cutty Sark guidebook will enhance your understanding of this great ship. Since the fire in 2007, the ship has been closed to the public for conservation and refurbishment, but is hope to reopen in 2010.
