Both “Tangalooma” and “Scot” were containerised for shipment to United Kingdom in 1998 for a centennial rematch of the 1898  challenge for the “Anglo-American Shield” between Medway Club (England)  “Maid of Kent” and SFS (Sydney) “Irex” – an event  inspired by SFS founder Mark Foy (1865 – 1950).  The original trophy is now proudly displayed at SFS
