Registration Forms below, but please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your intent to race. Let us know:
- Which club you are from
- How many crews you are bringing and whether you are men, women or mixed
- The age division of the crews

Purchasing prizes requires knowing how many divisions we will have, so this “pre-registration” information is especially important. Official registration forms online or available at the registration table pre-race.
