The last of three identical sisters, Slieve Roe proved the fastest of the trio although it was said at the time that the ‘Slieves’ were the finest sailing ships ever to be launched from Harland & Wolff’s yards. On a passage out to Calcutta in 1883, Slieve Roe raced 1,500 miles in five days and averaged 16 knots for one stretch of 23½ hours.
