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 to come.
