- The Yachts
Ted Tooher’s fourth Beneteau named Chancellor retired from last year’s race when it did not comply with SI 44.1 & 44.2 (basically, crew did not report via radio before entering Bass Strait). However, Tooher finished the previous Hobart in 57th overall and was 43rd overall in the 2015 Land Rover Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race. Along with others, she recently retired from the Newcastle Bass Island Race when fickle and no winds took their toll. This yacht is the former Pretty Fly II and was campaigned extensively by Colin and Gladys Woods, racing in the CYCA’s Blue Water Pointscore.
