Cutty Sark reopens in time for Olympics... Gutted by fire five years ago, the grand ship has been fully restored to its former glory. The Cutty Sark, built in 1869, and the last survivor of the greyhounds of the sea, is on permanent display in Greenwich, London.
The Octavius was discovered West of Greenland by a whaler on October 11th, 1775. Crew members of the Whaler Herald boarded the vessel, discovering the entire crew dead, frozen, apparently at the moment of their death. The Captain was found in his cabin frozen at his desk with his pen in hand, still writing in his log. He was accompanied by a dead woman, a child covered in a blanket and a sailor holding a tinderbox. The ship's log showed that the frozen ship had been afloat for over 13 years.
