She's The Culprit

She's The Culprit


This well-known yacht, owned by a fun group of sailing friends from around ‘The Lake’ and Newcastle, finished PHS 20th overall in the 75th race in 2019. ‘The Culprits’ finished PHS second overall for second in Division 2 in 2017 and third in Corinthian division, then PHS fifth overall for third in Division 2 in the 2015 race after winning PHS in 2014, when she won the York family Corinthian trophy. In 2013, then owners Glenn Bulmer (Tac), Glen Picasso (Cyril), who purchased the boat in 2011, and David O’Dowd sailed the Inglis/Jones 39 to PHS fourth overall in the Hobart for third in division.

Launched as Top Cat for the double-handed Melbourne Osaka race, the Inglis/Jones yacht relocated to Tasmania under the name 42 South. Todd Leary bought and renamed her She’s the Culprit, campaigning her in three Hobart’s from 2008 to 2010. A few more friends were added to the syndicate last year, including Kristen Anderson. This boat is always well sailed and a credit to the clubs she represents.
