Gipsy Moth charters

Gipsy-Moth-2Gipsy Moth IV, the historic British yacht in which Sir Francis Chichester singlehandedly circumnavigated the globe in 1967, will be available between April and October 2015 for charters in the Solent, longer voyages to France and the Channel Islands and events-based charters in Cowes, including Round the Island Race, Panerai Classic and Cowes Week.

Gipsy Moth IV set a series of records during Sir Francis Chichester’s voyage, including the fastest round-the-world voyage by a small vessel, the longest non-stop passage by a small vessel, and the then longest single-handed passage.

The aim of her 2015 programme is to make the iconic vessel available to the public, raise funds for her upkeep through the private charters and to introduce a new generation of young people to maritime challenge.
