About the Author:

Paul Gelder, editor of Yachting Monthly magazine, launched the Gipsy Moth project in 2004, to rescue the famous 53ft ketch, rotting away in dry dock at Greenwich, and sail her around the world for a second time, celebrating the 40th anniversary of Chichester's voyage and the magazine's 100th birthday. For the success of the campaign he was presented with the Ocean Cursing Club's Award of Merit (2006) and the magazine won 'Campaign of the Year from the Printing and Publishing Association in 2006. He has written two other books about round the world sailing events: The Loneliest Race, about the 1994-95 BOC Around Alone Challenge and InterSpray's Race Around the World, about the 1992-93 British Steel Challenge, in which he sailed on the first leg, from Southampton to Rio de Janeiro.
