HThe last time Warwick Sherman tackled the Sydney to Hobart race in 2012, the experienced sailor had spent the better part of the year fighting a rare form of cancer.

But when the 60-year-old skipper and owner of Occasional Coarse Language Too returns to Sydney Harbour on Boxing Day, the race will not simply be a "bucket list" challenge to be conquered. This time, Sherman said, it is about unfinished business.

"I'm far more prepared physically no question than I was last time. It's about proving to myself that I can do it," he said.

Sherman said his approach to the race had also changed.

"I think I have a bit more respect for it," he said. "Now I want to do it and I want to be alive at the end of it, whereas last time I didn't care."

Skippering "mostly the same crew" as last time, Sherman said their goal is to emulate their division-winning performance in 2012, but he concedes it will be difficult.

"It's going to be positive from the fact that I'm well enough to do the whole thing, but it might be a bit anti-climatic if we don't do that well." read the whole article>
