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,
Late of Her Majesty's Royal Canadian Navy Reserve.
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…. ;-)

Galway Redux TIMED Race 2022
As we last did in 2017, we come to Galway for another TIMED race. Starting from Acaill Bheag, we sail around the coast of County Galway for around 90nm to finish in Galway City. While the weather is generally mild, it gets the occasional severe windstorm which is key to setting a quick time in our Seacart 30s. Feel free to try as much as you want - that is, once you have brought your boat to Galway City first.

Round Britain and Ireland 2022
We invite you to participate in the 1780 nm race according to the clockwise movement around Ireland, Scotland, Shetland Islands and England. We will have four waters: the North Atlantic Ocean, the Celtic Sea, the North Sea, La Manche Channel. Each of them has its own specific navigation conditions but we will not exchange them here. Watch out for cyclones forming in the vicinity of Iceland and wandering in the south - east. The wind speed at this time of year can reach up to 40 kts and even more. Let's hope that sailing experience and our Sunfast3600 will safely lead us to the finish line.
