C Scow

The one-design C Scow class was created by Johnson Boatworks of White Bear Lake, Minnesota in 1905. Originally the boat and masts were made of wood and the gaffe-rigged mainsails were made of cotton, but many changes have taken place over the years.

Unlike typical mono-hulled sailboats, the flat bottomed C Scow was designed to sail at more of an angle. It helps the boat cut through the waves when wind gusts appear on the lake. It also reduces the friction created by projecting a very small surface area. It increases the waterline length of the boat. These all help to create speed. The boards are also “toed-in” a few degrees to provide some extra lift.

The C Scow has proven to be an excellent vessel to sail on Lake Arrowhead, and with both the A and B fleets, the C Scow is an ever-present sight on the weekends.
