Gipsy Moth IV Open Day


Step on board Gipsy Moth IV at Buckler's Hard on Thursday 15th August, with the chance to take a closer look at this record-breaking historic yacht which was sailed by Sir Francis Chichester around the world.

From 10am until 3pm, visitors to the Buckler's Hard attraction will be able to take tours on board the famous Gipsy Moth IV and talk to crew at the open day. Sir Francis Chichester became the first person to single-handedly circumnavigate the globe and his famous yacht will be moored at the bottom of the High Street, where Sir Francis he began his epic voyage.

More tales and artefacts from the voyage are also on show in the attraction's Maritime Museum, including a map, personal items from the adventure, records of the floodings and even a capsizing which put the journey in jeopardy.
