Cutty Sark

Recommended
Launched in 1869 from Scotland's Dumbarton shipyards, this majestic three-masted vessel was used in the China tea trade and became famous for her speed. Sold to a Portuguese company in 1895, she returned to Britain in 1922 and finally became a nautical museum. In 2007, Cutty Sark was devastated by fire and she is currently being restored. Visitors can monitor progress via webcam.
