With both the Cutty Sark and the Thermopylae sailing from Woosung on 17 June 1872, the two ships closely matched each other through the China Sea and into the Indian Ocean. By 7 August, and with a good tail wind, Cutty Sark found herself a good 400 miles ahead of Thermopylae. Then, on 15 August, disaster struck – Cutty Sark’s rudder gave way. After reconstructing the rudder twice in heavy seas, the ship arrived back at London on 19 October, around seven days after her rival. The courage and determination of Captain Moodie and his crew won Cutty Sark great credit, but Moodie retired from his command of the ship due to stress. The ship was never to get this close to winning the tea race again.
