Board » Practice Racing » Garbage Scow Prize : Rules

Page: Previous 1 2 3


Somewhere, somehow, I heared that in some race in I think NZ/Aus there is a trophy for the boat that finishes just 1 place before last?


Hi! At some class championships I have seen the last place boat to do the full series go home with a brand new suite of sails. Boats like catamarans and small monohull (think Moore or Antrims).



Shaking his head like a fool, the monkey realizes he can't swim.
Readings, notes, references, rules #2b, #6b, #8 : added. :-)

Status of G-Rogue still under discussion.... ;-D

I have the honour to address Your Lordship upon a matter of some importance, regarding the esoteric subject of etymology. The award of a rank in the Garbage Scow hierarchy is not a matter of lowly commerce and money-grubbing, but is an achievement, a matter of merit, not to be purchased but to be earned. It is indeed "a Pearl Beyond Price".
I would therefore beg of Your Lordship a small correction in the terminology associated with this most esteemed award, that it be referred to in all the attached (and considerable) verbiage as a PRIZE, not a 'Price'.
Signed by Your Most Obedient Servant,
Warrant Officer and Retired Sublieutenant,

If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
In rule 8, could it be G-Rogue?
I.E. Going Rogue.

Instead of G-Renegade, since we have a boat of that name. ;)

None so blind
In Rule#8, "G-Rogue" it is… :-)

G-Scow is now a prize with no price…. ;-)

Isla del Sol RTI 2021
Scanning the globe for special sprint locations, our intrepid course designer Renegade came across Isla del Sol. Interesting! But where is it? Turns out SOL's island is in the middle of the world's highest navigable body of water, Lake Titicaca, so obviously we just had to race there. You'd think at 3812m above sea level, the place would be windy, but not so, and not particularly cold either, so enjoy this shortish 26nm RTI in "how-did-we-get-them-here?" Fox 9.50s.
