The Homeward Race: Chrysolite and Havannah

One of the great sailing injustices, the magnificent galleon Chrysolite has faded into relative obscurity thanks to a series of skippers who never managed to make the most of her brilliant potential. Used to transport tea between China, the UK and Americas throughout her life, the British clipper was sailed first under Captain Enright and then Captain Alexander McLelland before coming to a sad end when she was wrecked during a hurricane off Mauritius in 1873.
