Register a Team

Register early to secure a spot as last year's event was sold out. Only 21 teams will be accepted on a first come first serve basis. A team must be registered and paid in full by the registration deadline of July 10, 2020. Registrations may be accepted after the registration deadline if space permits, but to avoid disappointment, teams are strongly encouraged to register as soon as possible. Additions or changes to the team roster will be permitted up to race day as long as all participants have completed a registration form and signed a waiver before getting on the dragon boat.

Safety and Waivers

All crew members must sign a waiver prior to participating in any practice session or race. Once the waiver is signed the participant will receive a bracelet or hand stamp in order to participate. It is the team captains’ responsibility to ensure that all of their team members have signed the waiver prior to loading into the dragon boats. No one will be allowed into the boat without having signed a waiver.

All participants must wear an approved Personal Floatation Device (PFD), which will be supplied by the Practice Supervisor or Race Coordinators.
