Ted Tooher’s fourth Beneteau named Chancellor (former Pretty Fly II) finished the 2015 Hobart 42nd overall. She retired from the 2014 race after not complying with the rules, but finished the previous Hobart 57th overall. Retired from the 2016 Sydney Gold Coast race when fickle conditions took their toll on a few. As Pretty Fly II, retired from 2004 Hobart was 42nd in 2005 and 26th in 2007. Tooher’s crew of 12 will comprise six from the US, UK and Germany, who bring Fastnet, Pacific Cup and Rolex Big Boat Series experience. One of five Beneteau 47.7 in this year’s race, Tooher says the competition for Chancellor is to beat them all. “Our motto is never dare, never do.”
