The Cutty Sark

When a little girl, I visited the Cutty Sark with my Father, his Grandfather was the Master of the Clipper Loch Torridon, and I've heard many old tales
Cutty Sark was late on the Clipper scene, but after an heroic early race with Thermopalae, where Cutty lost her rudder in a China Seas gale.- The crew jury rigged a new rudder from all the timber on the ship, and backed her onto the rudder using the long boats, then resumed the race back to England and into the hearts of the British people

I've painted this in the style of the old sailors paintings on wood that I saw on Grandad's walls. By the way he taught me to knit, all the sailors knew how,
Mummy didn't, She was frail looking, but could handle any wild horse I ever knew, She talked to them, they loved her, My daughters the same
