Since her launch in July last year, Warwick Sherman's latest yacht, a Ker designed Sydney GTS43, Occasional Coarse Language, he has spent the last 12 months getting to know the boat and how she performs in all conditions and now has his boat up to speed.Occasional Coarse Language Too finished second in the Grant Thornton Short Ocean Spring Pointscore and won Division A2 of the Audi Winter Series 2012. In her first major offshore outing, the Audi Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race, Sherman was forced to retire with a steering problem. However, he finished fifth and 10th respectively in the Flinders Islet and Bird Island races, so is getting there. OCL Too also won the Gascoigne Cup in October  this year. Having recovered well from a cancer scare, Sherman is undertaking his first Rolex Sydney Hobart after 18 years of ocean races, including a dozen Gosford to Lord Howe Island races.
