What's better than racing and beating your mates on the biggest lake in England?
Sat on a rickety boat made by yourself, while watching the other teams slowly fall apart and drift off.
Light-hearted competition, raft-building is none too serious with many competitions resulting in an 'all teams are equally disqualified ruling'
Potential for wet feet - guaranteed
Potential for a lake swim - high
Potential for great fun - without question!
On arrival your team will be given a set of barrels, poles and ropes. After this the briefest of briefings will help you understand where to start - then its up to your team to create a magnificent vessel, (or at least one which won't embarrass you too much).
