English Cutty Sark

Cutty Sark is a British clipper ship. Built on the River Leven, Dumbarton, Scotland in 1869 for the Jock Willis Shipping Line, she was one of the last tea clippers to be built and one of the fastest, coming at the end of a long period of design development, which halted as sailing ships gave way to steam propulsion.

The opening of the Suez Canal (also in 1869) meant that steamships now enjoyed a much shorter route to China, so Cutty Sark spent only a few years on the tea trade before turning to the trade in wool from Australia, where she held the record time to Britain for ten years. Improvements in steam technology meant that gradually steamships also came to dominate the longer sailing route to Australia, and the ship was sold to the Portuguese company Ferreira and Co. in 1895 and renamed Ferreira. She continued as a cargo ship until purchased in 1922 by retired sea captain Wilfred Dowman, who used her as a training ship operating from Falmouth, Cornwall. After his death, Cutty Sark was transferred to the Thames Nautical Training College, Greenhithe in 1938 where she became an auxiliary cadet training ship alongside HMS Worcester. By 1954, she had ceased to be useful as a cadet ship and was transferred to permanent dry dock at Greenwich, London, for public display.

Cutty Sark is listed by National Historic Ships as part of the National Historic Fleet (the nautical equivalent of a Grade 1 Listed Building). She is one of only three remaining original composite construction (wooden hull on an iron frame) clipper ships from the nineteenth century in part or whole, the others being the City of Adelaide, which arrived in Port Adelaide, South Australia on 3 February 2014 for preservation, and the beached skeleton of Ambassador of 1869 near Punta Arenas, Chile.

The ship has been damaged by fire twice in recent years, first on 21 May 2007 while undergoing conservation. She was restored and was reopened to the public on 25 April 2012. On 19 October 2014 she was damaged in a smaller fire.Cutty Sark whisky derives its name from the ship. An image of the clipper appears on the label, and the maker formerly sponsored the Cutty Sark Tall Ships' Race. The ship also inspired the name of the Saunders Roe Cutty Sark flying boat.

Czech Cutty Sark

Cutty Sark je jeden z posledních čajových kliprů. Ve své době byla tato loď nazývána Královnou oceánů, nicméně v překladu její jméno vlastně znamená Krátká košile (košilka). Robert Burns dal toto jméno čarodějnici vystupující v baladě Tam o' Shanter, podobu ženy v krátké košili měla také galionová figura lodi. Tato proslulá plachetnice, postavená v roce 1869, byla nejrychlejší velkou plachetnicí na světě. Loď je v současné době umístěna v lodním muzeu na břehu Temže v londýnské čtvrti Greenwich. 21. května 2007 byla těžce poškozena požárem během rekonstrukčních prací.

Italian Cutty Sark

Il Cutty Sark è un clipper inglese con stazza di 963 tonnellate, varato il 22 novembre 1869 nei Cantieri Navali di Scott & Linton a Dumbarton, in Scozia. Navigò sulla rotta delle Indie per il commercio del tè e della lana.

Deve il suo nome ("Cutty Sark" significa "camiciola, sottoveste" in lingua scozzese) alla polena che ne adorna la prua e che raffigura la strega semi-svestita Nannie, personaggio del componimento Tam O'Shanter del poeta scozzese Robert Burns.

Chenese 卡蒂薩克號

卡蒂薩克號(Cutty Sark,又名 短襯衫號、克里斯蒂克號等),是一艘現存在世的最古老飞剪式帆船,款式是英國3桅快速機帆船,長64.7公尺。卡蒂薩克是英国制造的最后一艘飞剪式帆船,也是最快的一艘,自此后,帆船被蒸气动力船而取代。卡蒂薩克號現位於英國泰晤士河旁的格林尼治港口上,作為博物館。管理组织為卡蒂薩克號信託。

自从苏伊士运河起用以后,蒸气动力船可以更快地到达中国,这一来,卡蒂薩克只花了几年时间在茶叶运输上,就被转去澳大利亚从事羊毛的运输。在这条远洋航线上,她走了进十年,创造了英国的历史。蒸气动力船经过不断地更新,慢慢地也可以到达澳大利亚,从而取代了帆船。在1895年,葡萄牙公司Ferreira and Co买下了卡蒂薩克,从新起名叫做Ferreira,继续从事货运。在1922,船长Wilfred Bowman买下了她,转去康瓦爾郡的法尔茅斯用来做培训。老船长去世后,她被转讓給泰晤士航海訓練學院當訓練船。在1954年,她正式地成为博物馆的展览船。

卡蒂薩克曾经两次被火烧过:第一次是在2007年5月21号、第二次是在2014年10月19号。

Cutty Sark whisky这种威士忌的酒名就是从这艘船而来的。

卡蒂薩克號這個名字來自蘇格蘭著名詩人羅伯特·伯恩斯寫的詩「Tam O'Shanter」中的女巫,她的綽號Cutty Sark來自她穿的白色短襯衣。
