Historic yacht Gipsy Moth IV tours UK for summer

Historic yacht Gipsy Moth IV, in which Sir Francis Chichester circumnavigated the globe in 1967, has announced its 2015 summer programme intended to promote charitable activities, make the iconic vessel available to young people and the public, and raise funds for its upkeep.

Gipsy Moth IV’s summer tour will include visits to Gosport, Weymouth, the Channel Islands, France, Isle of Wight and London, and she will be taking part in Panerai Classic Week, Cowes Week, America’s Cup and Weymouth Waterfest, among many others. Passage making opportunities will be available between all ports of call and the Gipsy Moth Trust will be making the yacht available for private and corporate bookings to support its upkeep, as well as public viewings and free youth involvement.
