Save the Cutty Sark

Greetings, loyal minions. Your Maximum Leader, the great Anglophile that he is, was intersted to read an article describing how British lottery money is being used to save the Cutty Sark, from slow dry rot. Your Maximum Leader remembers visiting the Cutty Sark on his first visit to Britain in 1985. (He idn’t visit the Cutty Sark on subsequent visits.) He is happy to learn that this iconic vessel will be preserved, and with it part of Britain’s, and the worlds, maritime heritage.

The Cutty Sark is a beautiful ship. She is the paramount example of clipper ship naval architecture. She is graceful, sleek, and fast. She conjures up for your Maximum Leader adventure on the high seas and the 19th Century tea trade. And her famous races with the “Thermopalae” from China and India.

Then again, the ship also conjures up scotch whisky. Cutty Sark was your Maximum Leader’s sainted father’s scotch for years. Until your Maximum Leader started buying him better scotch.

Carry on.
