Cutty Sark family history reunion

A family history reunion is to be held with descendants of many involved with the Cutty Sark clipper, now newly restored in London. For details on the story visit

There was a great documentary on BBC2 last night looking at the £50 million restoration project behind the clipper - if you missed it, check out the BBC iPlayer (UK residents only) to catch up with it in the next seven days. The iPlayer is at, with the programme entitled Cutty Sark: National Treasure Reopened.
