David Henry bought this Sydney 36CR, Philosopher, which he races out of Sydney and retired from the 2021 Hobart. This time he will sail the boat in the Two-Handed Division, against son and rival, Rupert, with Mistral. With his broad sailing experience, Henry should do well. Racing two-handed, he placed third and fifth respectively in the 2022 Flinders Islet and Tollgate Islands races. This yacht was formerly The Philosopher's Club, then Philosopher and Willie Smith’s Philosopher and scored 15th to win Division 6 and IRC Corinthian in the 2019 Hobart. With her former owners, the yacht scored top three places in 2008, 2011, 2018 and 2019 at the Australian Yachting Championships.
