It was a big weekend for everyone involved in the restoration of Cutty Sark. Five years after they were removed for conservation the iconic masts of the ship were returned and raised back into position, once again gracing the Greenwich skyline. The day was beautifully crisp and sunny and the rigging team successfully placed all three masts across the weekend. Whilst the masts are still at only about half their final height, the next section will be raised higher over the coming months, the return of the masts really makes the ship come to life ready for her grand re-opening in April 2012. There is a real buzz on the frenetic conservation site as everything reaches completion.
