In the shadow of the Cutty Sark is this small sailing ketch in which Sir Francis Chichester made the World's first single-handed circumnavigation of the globe (1966-7). Climb on board summer weekends.

Sir Francis Chichester was knighted close to this spot by Queen Elizabeth II using the same sword that Queen Elizabeth I used to knight Sir Francis Drake.

Sadly, Gypsey Moth IV left Greenwich in 2004 after being sold for £1. She was restored to seagoing condition and did another trip around the globe in 2005.
