The reopening of the 19th Century ship Cutty Sark has been postponed. The historic ship was badly damaged by fire in May 2007. The Cutty Sark Trust, who are managing the rebuilding of the ship had hoped it would be reopened in the summer of 2010, but have put the date back until spring 2011.

The ship is currently covered to protect the structure while it is being refurbished. The covering will be removed in 2010, but more work will remain to be done before the public will be allowed onboard.
