    Here's a bit more about Gypsy Moth IV.

    You can read it for yourself at-


    and clicking on "news".

    Having been towed to Tahiti she was then shipped to Auckland, where
    the repair took place. One of the photos shows her "lead keel being
    replaced", so she must have been rather thoroughly shaken. That's a
    job you don't take on lightly.

    Then she was shipped across the Tasman to Sydney in order to arrive
    there in time for some junketing. She sets off under sail this weekend
    on the next part of her voyage, which will take her North and West,
    around Australia to Indonesia, with a number of stops.

    However, that site is no more forthcoming about the events associated
    with her grounding.
