The original scoring for boats that had not won a 1st ,2nd or 3rd prize in any of the three Friday series or pursuit series of the current year was re-calculated using a DNC score equal to the total number of eligible boats + one.
The trophy was not awarded in 2020 when racing was restricted by covid and was reintroduced in 2021 for the third Sunday Pursuit Series. From 2022 it was awarded to the winning yacht (EWQ classes) in the third Sunday Series with H class having separate trophies.
The shackle holds a significant place as a yacht racing prize, probably the first occasion being last century in Antigua, where the ‘Rusty Shackle Trophy’ is still competed for.
