The Clipper Ships - Tea and Wool Clippers

A clipper was a very fast multiple-masted sailing ship of the 19th century. Narrow for their length, small by the standards of the day but with a huge sail area they specialised in carrying lightweight cargoes such as tea and wool.

Clippers were mostly built in British and American shipyards, the British Cutty Sark and Thermopylae being among the most famous. They sailed all over the world - on the trade routes between the United Kingdom and her colonies, in the trans-Atlantic trade, and round Cape Horn during the California Gold Rush.
