TOOGOOLOOWOO V is the second Six Metre construction to be commissioned by John Taylor. The name is from the Australian Aborigine. Her design closely follows that of the 12 Metres Intrepid and Valiant with fuller stem sections of the latter. Toogy is the only six metre to have been built to the loophole discovered in the Rule for measuring the waterline length. This loophole has since been closed. The Toogy V is a good all-around design but is weakest in light airs and best in a real blow.
