Clipper and Sailing Ships Which Voyaged To Auckland New Zealand
from the British Isles

O Clipper Ships! Where are, where are ye now?
I cry the long degrees thro' foul and fair!
The trade winds sigh. "We speed no clipper bow".
The hollow-roaring Forties echo, "where?"

This website is constantly being developed, and records some of the many stories associated with the great sailing ships, which voyaged to Auckland, New Zealand. Passages took approximately 76 to 110 days under sail from Great Britain through the 1800s until the early 1900s.

If you have notes on any vessels and would like to be considered for inclusion in this website, please e-mail.
