Chancellor

This is the third Beneteau owned and sailed by Ted Tooher under the name Chancellor. Formerly Pretty Fly II, the boat was campaigned extensively by her previous owners Colin and Gladys Woods, and clocked up thousands of sea miles along the eastern seaboard. Her highlight was a second place in the CYCA’s Blue Water Pointscore in 2005/06. Tooher has had the Beneteau 47.7 refitted and is looking forward to success throughout the CYCA Blue Water Pointscore Series in the lead up to the final race, the Rolex Sydney Hobart. Tooher retired from the first race of the series, the slow Sydney-Gold Coast, due to time constraints. His previous Chancellor, a Beneteau 40.7, contested five Rolex Sydney Hobarts (her last in 2011, and finished 59th), and four Audi Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Races.
