Why Conserve the Cutty Sark?

The GMI are very privileged to have Richard Doughty, Director of the Cutty Sark Trust, to present the next GMI Research Seminar of the 2011/12 programme on Wednesday 15th February 2012.

One of the main advantages of talking about the Cutty Sark is being able to say that this is a ship that needs no introduction. Richard Doughty will consider why this merchant sailing ship is so highly regarded around the world and why, despite the damage done by the fire in 2007, so much time and effort has been invested in conserving her original structure.

The seminar will take place at the University of Greenwich, room 075, Queen Anne Court, Greenwich, London, SE10 9LS at 6pm. Tea & Coffee will be available from 5.30pm and a glass of wine afterwards. The seminar is free and there is no need to book, everyone is welcome.
