Gresham College: The Great Days of Sail – Richard Doughty – #3/4 – Why conserve the Cutty Sark?

14/06/2020

About this lecture

One of the main advantages of talking about Cutty Sark is being able to say this is a ship which needs no introduction. Richard Doughty, Chief Executive of Cutty Sark Trust, considers why this merchant sailing ship is so highly regarded around the world and why, despite the damage done by the fire in 2007, so much time and effort has been invested in conserving her original structure.

This is part of the Great Days of Sail Mondays at One series.
