The last surviving tea clipper and the fastest and greatest of her time, Cutty Sark is a living testimony to the bygone, glorious days of sail, and is also a national icon of British maritime history. The ship re-opened in April 2012 after an extensive conservation project which now offers a new and immersive experience, allowing visitors to venture both underneath and on board this unique and beautiful three-masted sailing ship. This lecture series will cover all areas of this ambitious project – the largest and most exciting maritime heritage project to date – from the struggle to secure the ship’s future, to the awe-inspiring architecture and engineering of the new scheme; to the challenge of re-interpreting an international icon of sail.
