Listen to Paul Gelder discuss Gipsy Moth IV with John McCarthy on BBC Radio 4
YM editor Paul Gelder broadcast to the nation last weekend.
Paul was invited to share the Gipsy Moth IV story as part of BBC Radio 4’s Excess Baggage programme.
Presenter John McCarthy and Paul shared their early memories of seeing Chichester’s famous boat at Greenwich before she fell into disrepair. They also discussed her dramatic rescue from a South Pacific reef.
The account of the historic boat’s second circumnavigation is described in ‘Gipsy Moth IV, A Legend Sails Again’ the recently published hardback, written by Paul Gelder.
