Raft Building Challenging

Will it survive against all tests? Teamwork, communication, and a positive attitude are key to staying a float. Brilliant fun, challenging and bound to bring out your competitive side. Safety is our no.1 priority. We are dedicated to ensuring that you have great fun in a safe environment and your instructor and our fleet of safety boats are on hand at all times to guide and support you through this fantastic activity.

Build and Race a raft as a team.  Each team will receive two planks and three boards to create their raft; an instructor will demonstrate the suitable knots to use and methods to build a raft.

The teams will then be given time to build their rafts, before a shake test decides if their craft is seaworthy. Everyone will then be given time to get changed into a wetsuit, helmet and buoyancy aid and collect paddles to move their raft. A short safety brief will ensure everyone is aware of what to do on the water and how to use their crafts.

Following this the water challenge will be revealed. Each team must test their craft for its ability to move around a given course, for speed in a race against each other, for stability with their entire team standing up at the same time, and a selection of other challenges.

(Challenges may vary, subject to conditions, and group ages/abilities). The group must then return their craft safely to the shore and untie it before the suspense is broken and results given.

Please note certain activities are only available on certain days during July and August.
