The Cutty Sark. When launched in 1869, the Cutty Sark was at the pinnacle of sailing ship technology, with one important mission: to bring back the season's first tea crop! Now dry-docked in maritime Greenwich, a world heritage site, you can see how her beautiful streamlined shape helped her to become the fastest ship of her type. Inside is a collection of carved ships' figureheads and displays telling the illustrious story of the Cutty Sark.
