There would be no more popular winner than Bruce Taylor and his highly experienced crew aboard this Reichel/Pugh (USA) design out of Melbourne. Bruce is on his 38th voyage south and his 33rd race straight has been so close on so many occasions without gaining the Tattersall Cup for outright honours. He has won a host of divisional prizes and the closest he has come is second overall to Wild Rose in 2014 winning his division in the process.  The overall winner of the 2018 Noakes Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race. This Chutzpah is Taylor’s sixth boat of the same name.
