Each patrol is given three staves and three lengths of rope. The object is to lash an isoceles triangle using one diagonal lashing and two square lashings. The patrol must then carry one of its members on top of the triangle from a starting line to a finish line. If the Scout falls off or the lashings come undone, they must return to the starting line, fix them if necessary, and start again.
Scoring is as follows:
10 points for the first patrol to finish the race
5 points each for the three lashings being done correctly
5 points for Patrol Spirit
