Cutty Sark off Flushing

Cutty Sark was launched in 1869 and made her last passage under the British flag in 1895, carrying her biggest cargo of wool from Brisbane to London. She was then sold and sailed under the Portuguese flag for the next 27 years. 

In 1922 she was bought by Captain Wilfred Dowman, of Trevissome, Penryn, who brought her to Falmouth for restoration, where she remained until 1938.
