In his tiny Gipsy Moth, with its one engine and a rubber dinghy in case that engine failed, he flew from England to Australia; and later from New Zealand to Australia across the Timor Sea. Sir Francis never forgot his indomitable little plane, and the sailing Gipsy Moths have become world-famous with him. In Gipsy Moth III , Sir Francis won the first solo transatlantic race in 1960; he broke the transatlantic solo record in her in 1962; and in 1966 Gipsy Moth IV left Plymouth to sail around the world, the latest achievement in the annals of Sir Francis Chichester. ; 0.5 x 7.6 x 5.2 Inches; 141 pages
