Last year, Chutzpah placed third in IRC Division 2 and with over 30 years of competing in the ocean classic Taylor has notched up an amazing ten divisional wins as well as one 2nd and one 3rd overall. Chutzpah won the IRC/AMS handicap double in the ORCV’s 2008 Melbourne to Stanley race; and IRC Division 2 in the 2008 Audi Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race.
