The Log of the "Cutty Sark" is a collection of remarkable stories, anecdotes and data gathered from the Cutty Sark logs, captain’s abstracts and first-hand accounts of those who served aboard the world’s fastest tea clipper.

The book is woven with dramatic stories of life aboard this iconic vessel, including a particular incident which has been purported to have influenced Joseph Conrad in his writing.

With an extensive appendix, including the spar measurements of other famous clippers, such as the Ariel, Titania, Spindthrift, Hallowe'en and the Normancourt, The Log of the "Cutty Sark" contains a wealth of information on the world’s fastest tea clipper and her contemporary rivals from the latter years of sail.
