RESERVED - Gipsy Moth Circles the World - Sir Francis Chichester 1967 - Hodder and Stoughton, London - First Edition ‘A remarkable feat, a moving story of conquest by the unquenchable human spirit, a determined old man's gesture of defiance at the modern world. Such was the voyage; his book is a fine account of it with nothing left out.’ – Saturday Review

Chichester’s incredible account of his 1967 single-handed navigation of the globe, a nine month journey undertaken on his 53-foot ketch
Gipsy Moth IV. His voyage – at the age of 65 – was completed with only one stop, and 226 days at sea, battling hostile seas and enduring the huge storms of the Southern Ocean.
