Gypsy Moth IV

Gypsy Moth IV


Greenwich, United Kingdom (GB)
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.
