This is the definitive history of a sailing icon. In this beautifully illustrated book, Yachting Monthly's former editor Paul Gelder tells the remarkable story of Gipsy Moth's rise, fall and triumphant rise again. It is illustrated throughout with exclusive photographs of the boat, the restoration project and dramatic images from both of her epic voyages.
