Gipsy Moth IV is the vessel that Sir Francis Chichester used to be the first person to solo circumnavigate the globe in 1966/67 at the age of 65. It was his trip that inspired the Golden Globe race of 1968 and according to Sir Ben Ainslie “Gipsy Moth IV and Sir Francis Chichester was the grandfather of all single handed ocean racing”.
