@ London, United Kingdom
This was my second trip to London but my first visit to see the Cutty Sark, a British clipper ship in 1869. Designed for the competitive tea trade between China and Great Britain, faster ships could usually command a higher price paid to transport the cargo than others. This ship required 11 miles of rigging and 32 sails to achieve her high speed. Considered the fastest ship in the world at the time, the Cutty Sark had a maximum logged speed of 17.5 knots (32.4 km/h; 20.1 mph). Nikon D500 w/18-200mm, processed with Aperture and CK Suite.
