Pushing the boat out: help fund the new cutty sark

Written by

A group of Cutty Sark-enthusiasts aren’t content with just one big boat - they want to build another that can actually set sail. The original ship was one of the fastest sailing ships of its day back in the 1800s but it now sits in a permanent dry dock in Greenwich, after it became obsolete in 1954. The organisers behind the project have started a crowdfunding campaign, so if you've also got a passion for giant boats, you can help them fund a full-size seagoing replica by 2019 - the 150th anniversary of the Cutty Sark’s launch. Ahoy!
