Eric Newby sailed in "Moshulu" during "The Last Grain Race" of 1938. His book of the same name, a 'must read' and not only for the photos he took:

The Last Gran Race would have to be the best book I have ever read.
It made me love this wonderful vessel. Great to see she is still with us.

Gijsha, enjoy a wonderful voyage on Moshulu as I did in a book by Eric Newby. I need to dig it out and read it once again.
Some books stay with you forever, and this is one.

Yep, in my school time I read "The Bird of Dawning" by John Masefield about the tea clippers and that is such a book too.
