Sir Francis Chichester is one of the most iconic figures in British history. Already an acclaimed aviator and navigator it was his 1966-1967 circumnavigation on his yacht Gipsy Moth IV for which he is best remembered. Since then his remarkable boat has forged a special place as part of our maritime heritage and half a century on, her journey is very much alive still. Now owned by a charitable trust, it is our aim to continue to support and maintain her and to keep the legacy of Chichester very much alive for future generations.
You can play your part in this by sailing her yourself, and by becoming a Friend of Gipsy Moth
