Snowdome Occasional Coarse Language Too


Warwick Sherman and Occasional Coarse Language Too have done three Rolex Sydney Hobart‘s, debuting in 2012 and winning IRC Division 2, placing 14th overall. They retired in 2014 with steering damage, but placed 5th in division and 28th overall in 2017, winning the Corinthian Division. Sherman added the race to his bucket list after a bout with non-Hodgkin’s Mantel Cell Lymphoma (blood cancer). Chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant in 2012 put Sherman into what was supposed to be long term remission, but the Lymphoma returned in 2015 and he has, apparently, beaten it again, with more chemo and a stem cell transplant from his brother. The Sydney yachtsman has since raised funds and awareness of the disease through the Snowdome Foundation.

You can support him via: and help raise much-needed funds for blood cancer research in Australia, by donating and sharing the fundraising page: Snowdome Foundation (Occasional Coarse Language Too)
