Motley Crew 

2022 Orlando

MOTLEY CREW is the name of our mixed gender composite teams which are formed temporarily for a single event for paddlers from any teams anywhere in the world, and may or may not have practices included.  As a result, anyone signing up for this team must have experience paddling with an existing team (their "home" team).  These teams are for paddlers who want some extra races on top of those already part of their home team program.  You may not sign up for this team at a particular regatta if your home team is also racing at the same regatta.  This team is open to anyone, not just Rusty Dragons paddlers. 

2022 Sept 9 Update:  Registration for GWN Orlando is now closed as we reached our capacity of 22 members.  Thank you to all who registered for this adventure!

- This mixed gender team is open to anyone in North America and beyond.

- We are capping the team registration at 24 paddlers (includes drummer and steer/coach).

- It is for intermediate to experienced paddlers as we are racing with just a few practices together.

- We have rented a large AirBnB type unit with several separate bedrooms for the crew.

$69 USD / $90 CAD fee includes practice & race costs.  

- Wear your own team jersey.  We'll add a common sleeve or bandana for everyone.

- Paddlers should arrive by Thursday noon (Oct 13) in order to best prepare for race day.

- Paddlers are responsible for their travel, room, and food costs (coordination help provided). 

Practices:  2


We have arranged for two practices at the GWN race venue, on Thursday evening at 5 PM and Friday afternoon at 3 PM. It is expected all participants attend both practices.
