On the afternoon of Monday, 22nd November 1869, a beautiful little clipper ship of 963 tons gross was launched at Dumbarton on the River Leven. Cutty Sark was built for John 'Jock' Willis, a seasoned sailing ship master who had taken over his father’s firm of ship owners in the port of London. The ship was designed by Hercules Linton, a partner in the Dumbarton firm of Scott & Linton. The ship was towed to Greenock for final work on her masts and rigging. She was then brought to London to load her first cargo for China.
In January 2006, letters written by Clarence Ray (apprentice on board the Cutty Sark in 1894) were brought to light by Dick Ray, his great-nephew. As steam-ships moved further into the wool trade in the 1890s, the Cutty Sark began to make less money for her owner.  After the ship returned to the UK from Brisbane in 1895, Jock Willis sold her to a Portuguese firm, J.


By January 1922 Ferreira ran into a Channel gale, and the captain put into Falmouth harbour to repair the damage.
In 1923 her old name and nationality was restored; the Cutty Sark had returned to British ownership. After saving the Cutty Sark for the nation, Wilfred Dowman restored the ship to a close approximation of her appearance as a tea and wool clipper.  This was a considerable feat, due to the shortage of necessary materials caused by the First World War.
However, Captain Dowman died in 1936, and his widow decided that she was unable to maintain the ship at her own cost.  Therefore, the Cutty Sark was sold to the Incorporated Thames Nautical Training College, Greenhithe, and left Falmouth in 1938 accompanied by cheers from well-wishers and hoots from vessels in the harbour. In 1951, the ship was sent to London, to be moored in the Thames as part of the Festival of Britain celebrations.  Returning to Greenhithe, it was not long before her plight became noticed by those determined to save her from the scrap-yard.
The Cutty Sark Society was formed by Frank Carr, Director of the National Maritime Museum, and patronised by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.  In a special ceremony, just before the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip took possession of Cutty Sark on behalf of the the society.

On that day, she was given a name that was to become renowned throughout the seafaring world. It is believed that he moulded the bowlines of Willis's earlier vessel, The Tweed into the midship attributes of Firth of Forth fishing boats, creating a beautiful new hull shape that was stronger, could take more sail, and be driven harder than any other.


Moore and his Mate were transferred from the Blackadder to the Cutty Sark and it was under his command that the ship embarked upon her most successful period of working life. This important archive reveals how a fifteen year old boy lived and worked alongside his shipmates.
Wilfred Dowman, a retired windjammer skipper and owner of the training ship Lady of Avenel, saw the ship and set out to buy her.  However, she returned to Lisbon without further mishap and was sold to a new Portuguese owner who changed her name to Maria do Amparo. She was also the first historic vessel since Drake’s Golden Hind in the sixteenth century to be opened to the public, and oral history interviews have revealed how boatmen used to take many visitors out to the ship.
His ambition was for Cutty Sark to be the fastest ship in the annual race to bring home the first of the new season's tea from China.
