Do you dream of sailing on the open water, breathing in the fresh air with friends or colleagues? Then this is the challenge for you well…almost! It might not be the Mediterranean but we can guarantee you will have a blast. Welcome to the Raft Building Challenge. Held at the Helly Hanses Watersports Centre in the heart of Salford Quays, this is the perfect activity for team building or to simply just have fun! In your team of 8, you will be given barrels, logs, ropes and all sorts to build your raft. The better you work together as a team, the better your raft will be and the farther you will travel and you hopefully won’t simply sink straight away :-) You will then be (hopefully) racing against 3 other teams to see who the ultimate raft building team is.
