The Clipper Ship Anglesey, 1150 tons
Built at Blackwall in 1852 for Green. She was one of the fastest ships in Green's fleet, being a very fine sailer in light airs. She made the longest run in one day by any Blackwall frigate, 418 miles by her log, but worked out accurately it comes to 380 miles. This was on the 29th May, 1871 and followed re-rigging at sea, during the previous week, all three top masts and the jibboom having been carried away by a violent gust which gave no previous warning of its approach. During the week in which she made her record run she did 1925 miles, a very fine performance for a little Blackwaller.
