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…. ;-)

This amazing race is a total of 91 nautical miles which consists of rounding the beautiful island of Sušac. Our SOLers will be racing around these amazing waters in none other than our great Seascape 18s. Be sure to bring your binoculars for this one as with such beautiful surroundings you will definitely need them!

Vasco da Gama Ocean Race 2022

Point Yacht Club welcomes Sailonline to the 2022 running of the classic Vasco da Gama Ocean Race. This race is the oldest established international sailing event in South Africa and traditionally starts in the bay of Maputo, the old Portuguese colonial capital of Mozambique and finishes in Durban. Last year, and now again this year, the race was/will be from Durban to East London - circa 250nm in native Cape 31 speed machines.

San Francisco to New York 2022
Cornelius Vanderbilt, who made his money - that his descendants enjoyed to spend sailing and racing yachts - by recognizing that getting from the East Coast to the West Coast of the USA was best done by rail, would have been more than a little amused to see SOL organizing yacht races over the very route by water he made redundant. It's about 13,000 nautical miles, which compares with less than 3000 statute miles by train! Six years ago, the best SOLers managed to complete the passage from San Francisco to New York in around 36 days, sailing our much-used veteran ocean greyhound, the Super Maxi 100. Time to try again, this time on the VO70. If you aim for a SOG of 18kn, it'll only take you a month.
