Gipsy Moth IV: A Legend Sails Again
by Gelder, Paul
A beautiful book, and a tribute to the sailing icon made famous by Sir Francis Chichester. This is the story of the rescue and restoration of "Gipsy Moth IV" from her dry dock in Greenwich after 39 years, and her circumnavigation to mark the 40th anniversary of Chichester’s voyage. The sailors aboard this voyage included kids recovering from cancer, from drug addictions, ex-prisoners, a Princess and a Duke. The chapters are divided into 32 Legs of the voyage, with many colour photos. Forewards by HRH the Princess Royal, Ellen MacArthur, and Giles Chichester.
