The Cutty Sark was, in 1869, one of the last sailing clippers to be built, and she is the only classic clipper still surviving. She is now preserved in dry dock at Greenwich London, England.

The Cutty Sark was destined for the China tea trade, at that time an intensely competitive race across the globe from China to London, with immense profits to the ship to arrive with the first tea of the year. However, she did not distinguish herself in this trade, but in the famous race, against Thermopylae.

The Cutty Sark was destined for the China tea trade, at that time an intensely competitive race across the globe from China to London, with immense profits to the ship to arrive with the first tea of the year. However, she did not distinguish herself in this trade, but in the famous race, against Thermopylae.

Cutty Sark was 400 miles in the lead when a storm blew up round the Cape of Good Hope. Disastrously, she lost her rudder. Moodie had the carpenter make a temporary rudder. Sailing in terrible winds and seas, the crew, including Willis's brother, urged him to head for dock in South Africa, but Moodie refused and reached London only seven days behind Thermopylae. Although they lost the race, both captain and crew were celebrated as heroes for their gallant effort.
