The Yachts

She's The Culprit

Glenn Bulmer, Glen Picasso and David O’Dowd own the well-travelled and well-named She’s The Culprit, which finished PHS second overall to Helsal 3 in last year’s Land Rover Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race. In 2013, they sailed her to fifth from seven boats in PHS, in conditions unsuited to the yacht. However, they were appeased with third in division in the 2013 Rolex Sydney Hobart, and even more so in the 2014 race, when their Division 2 yacht won PHS overall (beating every PHS Division 1 yacht to the post), and won the Corinthian Division. Built in 1994 and launched as Top Cat for the Melbourne Osaka Yacht Race, the yacht was sold to a Tasmanian and renamed 42 South. Her next owner, Todd Leary, changed her name to She’s The Culprit. Leary and campaigned her regularly, including three Hobart’s (from 2008-2010), before her now owners realised her potential and took her on. Her blue hull with chequered bow is eye-catching.
