The Cutty Sark Story


Over the years there have been so many books published on both the existence and the history of Cutty Sark, that one may wonder if there is anything new to be added. In this ebook no attempt has been made to add anything new; its object is merely to create a more vivid impression of an historic event which took place in May 1916 off the South African coast.

Between the years of 1895 and 1922, Cutty Sark as we know her today, was sailing under the Portuguese flag as Ferreira. At a later date she was sold to another Lisbon ship owner named Da Silva who changed her name to Maria di Amparo, but in 1923 Captan Wilfred Dowman bought the ship for Britain and gave her the name of Cutty Sark.

In the year of 1916 when sailing under the Portuguese as Ferreira, the ship was severely undermanned for a so called short sea passage from Mozambique and around the Cape of Good Hope to Mossamedes. On that passage, Ferreira hit some heavy weather off the Eastern Cape: as a consequence her master was compelled to cut his masts away. As well as a number of other incidents regarding the ship under her three different names, the saga of Ferreira's part dismasting has been made one of the main themes of this ebook.

Re : Talk yourself slim with the ChatterDiet I would be grateful if you could pass on my e-mail to John Riohardson. I have just read your book and feel that it is important to respond to the contents of the book. Congratulations for writing his book! It is so logical and and I have already "turned right" at your junction, so to speak. When one stops and takes in what you say, your approach is correct. Yes, as a mother I have been feeding my children 3 meals a day having been conditioned that this was the right thing to do. Only eat when you are hungry is so,so logical and I am finding it quite easy to follow, to my surprise. So I want to thank you for writing the book. Your reference to taking control, relaxing and re-visiting one's aims every morning + night really do make sense. very interesting also and shows just how we can all take control. I have already Acknowledged, am in the process of Reprogramming and have every intention to Succeed. Thank you once again for sharing such a brilliant approach - Heather

Re: Talk yourself slim with the self-chatter diet..... A good read and it makes a lot of sense just need to retrain our minds, which as you say we have all been trained that you eat three meals a day, hungry or not. I still remember being told I'm not leaving the table until I had eaten everything, that's just the way it was back then. Your Granddad was a great man. I would advise everybody with a weight problem or not to read your book it's just brilliant. Well done - Rachael
