One Gorgeous Boat


This is the sixth year for this team. Join us and spend your summer enjoying the paddling and camaraderie that comes with this team. We practice Sundays, giving us a more relaxed atmosphere than a weeknight practice and also to have practices that are 15 minutes longer than other teams.  Again this year we will have monthly video review - where we take video of the team paddling and can look at it to identify both strengths as well as areas where the team can improve. We are also considering a longer season with a 2nd regatta.  This team was formed in 2014 when World Pride came to Toronto (we also had a float in the parade).  It is a team open to anyone of any ability, and no experience is required.


This is the fifth year for this team. Join us and spend your summer months enjoying the paddling, camaraderie, and fresh air on waterfront that comes with this team. New this year is monthly video review - where we take video of team paddling and can look at it later to identify areas where the team can improve. This is an invaluable tool to becoming a better team. We have two dedicated co-captains identified very early on to help plan for an amazing year!

The team had a great year in 2018.   After practicing once-a-week in May and June they competed at the 16th annual DDRA Canada Day Regatta on Toronto Island on Canada's 151st birthday, where they built on a solid first 500m race, then a faster 200m race, they then persevered and won GOLD in the Mixed B Division in a very close races.

Meet new people, learn new skills, breathe in some fresh air, enjoy the waterfront, and get a little exercise. Don't miss our adventure this coming season with the thrill of racing and the camaraderie of our special group.

JOIN US in 2019!


The team had a great year in 2018.  Many members started the year with MTCS Oars to Discover (May and June and racing on Canada Day), and then joined Guns n Roses for the July through September program.   As many members were the same on both teams, we decided to make it a single full season team in 2019.  The MTCS team name will be dropped (as not many paddlers were from the Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and Sport (MTCS) any longer.  And besides, Guns n Roses was always meant to be the sister team to Motley Crew who practice the same night and time all season (plus Mondays too).

Meet new people, learn new skills, breathe in some fresh air, enjoy the waterfront, and get a little exercise. Don't miss our adventure this coming season with the thrill of racing and the camaraderie of our special group.
