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…. ;-)

Shetland Winter Race 2022
A-OI!!! The cry should soon be ringing out in the streets of Lerwick as the Guizer Jarl and his crew, along with the other teams in the Up Helly Aa parade complete their preparations for the biggest fire festival in Europe. While Shetland continues to manage #COVID19 well, Up Helly Aa has been cancelled but this won't stop SOLers racing their Elan 410s this 383nm course from Aberdeen to be sociable in Lerwick Harbour. SAILING NOTE: Gruney may be approached from any direction but must be passed for rounding purposes as indicated on the chart.
