(the) Cutty Sark

(the) Cutty Sark
a famous British sailing ship, built in 1869, which carried tea from China and then, after 1879, wool from Australia. From 1895 until 1922, the Cutty Sark was owned by the Portuguese, and then she became a training ship for British sailors. Since 1957 she has been open to visitors at ↑Greenwich. Her name comes from the ‘cutty sark’ (short shirt) worn by one of the witches in the poem Tam o' Shanter by Robert Burns.
