- The Yachts
Ted Tooher, who names his boats Chancellor, has downsized from his Beneteau 47.7 and returned to this Beneteau 40 which he once owned and raced in the 2010 and 2011 Sydney Hobarts before selling it to Matthew Vadas and Jonathon Stone, who placed 29th in 2012, 27th in 2013, 12th in 2014 and 52nd in 2016. She last raced to Hobart in 2019, as HYC Breakthrough, sailed by Irishman Darren Wright and his Irish crew for Howth Yacht Club and finished 51st overall. Tooher raced his Beneteau 47.7 in the 2019 Rolex Sydney Hobart and placed 110th overall. He may not finish at the top of the pile, but the genial Tooher gives opportunities to sailors that they might not otherwise get, including those from overseas.
