Snowdome Occasional Coarse Language Too


Occasional Coarse Language Too’s Sydney Hobart debut was 2012 and she won IRC Division 2. Warwick Sherman raced the Ker GTS 43 again in 2014, but retired with steering damage, a let-down for Sherman, who had written the race into his bucket list after a bout with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer and out of respect for fellow yachtsman Ed Psaltis, who is now sailing with him. With Phil Eadie navigating and Ed Psaltis (driving) accompanied by a few ex Midnight Rambler crew, OCCL Too finished 23rd overall and fourth in Division 2 in the 2017 Sydney Gold Coast, fifth in the Flinders Islet Race, sixth in the Newcastle Bass Island Race and seventh in the Cabbage Tree Island Race – consistent results.

Warwick and his team are supporting the Snowdome Foundation and are raising funds with a target of $6,280 that is $10 per nautical mile of the race. Help them go beyond this target by donating online at
