Registration Information

Sign up for one of the most exciting festivals on the dragon boat calendar. It's easy to get involved in the races. All you need is 20 of your friends and/or co-workers to form a team, and get ready for race day.

What does a Team Entry include?

Besides the promise of a thrill like no other, your team entry includes 3 x 500m races.

The Top 5 Sport Division Women and Open Teams will participate in a 100m exhibition sprint race and the Top 10 Mixed crews will compete in a 2,000m race!

Teams that belong to an organization or industry will have the opportunity to participate in a bonus race, known as an Industry Cup*. Be sure to select an industry during registration so you are included!

Entry includes a team practice with a GWN coach. Practices are held at Orlando Rowing Club from Wednesday October 8th to Wednesday October 15th and at the event site from Thursday October 16th and Friday October 17th. A coach, along with all equipment, will be provided.

*Eligibility for Industry Cup Races: 70% or more of your paddlers must be part of the same industry in order to be eligible for that industry cup race. The top 6 seeded crews from each Industry category, based on each crew’s first round time from Saturday morning races will advance to their Industry race.

Race Class

A racing class defines the gender and age makeup of your crew.

A Mixed Team consists of at least 8 female paddlers, based on a 20 paddler crew.

An Open Team consists of any combination of paddlers (team may be all one gender).

A Women's Team consists of 20 female paddlers and a female drummer. The steersperson on a Women's Team may be male.

How to Register

Registering for the Walgreens Orlando International Dragon Boat Festival Presented by PepsiCo is easy and can be done online! The first step in signing up your team is to designate one person as the Team Captain and create an account on gwndragonboat.com.

How to Register A Crew

Only one person can register a team online. They are known as the team captain. This person will be in charge of managing the team’s registration and will be the key contact for bookings and festival communications.

To register a team, the team captain must have an online account on gwndragonboat.com. To create an account, you will need a valid email address. If an account already exists, please login using your email address and password.

Once logged in, click on Events for a full event listing. Select the event you'd like to race in and the race class. For more information about different race classes and to see which one your crew fits in, visit our FAQs. Continue to follow the registration process prompts until you are at the payment page.

Early Bird Pricing will only be honored if payment is received within 15 day from the date of registration. A team registration is not secured until full payment is received at least 2 weeks before race day.
