Up for grabs are four unique trophies
- The fours trophy will be named after the first four to complete the route.
- The Fairfax-Cook Trophy for the fastest Classic Pair.
- The Saville Trophy for the fastest Open Pair.
- The Pete Bird Trophy for the fastest single.
After being presented to the winners each trophy will spend two years with the winning crew before being returned to New Ocean Wave for presentation to those who win the Great Pacific Race 2016. All ocean rowers who successfully complete the crossing will receive their own trophy to keep and a certificate in celebration of their achievement. New Ocean Wave will also liaise with the independent adjudicators of Guinness World Records for ocean rowing the Ocean Rowing Society regarding any World Records that are set or broken.
The race rules are primarily to ensure the safety of all race entrants. The race rules include details about mandatory equipment that must be taken and where it must be kept on the boat, the design of the boat itself and key dates regarding arrival at the race start. They also define what counts as external assistance, penalties that will be applied in the event of a rule being broken and the training that each entrant should complete prior to the race start.
