Team Registration

Teams typically consist of 22 active members in the boats plus other supporting cast. Please note that each team must have at least 8 female paddlers. Paddlers may only paddle with one team.

Registrations are welcome at any time, though space may be limited as the race day draws near.  The stair-stepped registration fee structure is intended to encourage teams to register as early as possible.

You may register online by filling out the blanks below and then clicking on the Buy Now link.  Once your payment is accepted, you will be registered.  If you prefer to register by mail, download the form using the link at the bottom of this page and mail in your check to NSDBF, P.O. Box 1301, Grand Marais, MN 55604.
