Whitsun sees a range of courses specifically aimed at providing tuition for those that wish to acquire a basic competance in a range of paddlesport craft, our  fourth course focusses on the Rafting.

You may have watched others take part in a rafting activity and thought that looks fun, did their raft stay together or did it fall apart. This course assumes you are a complete beginner when it comes to succesful raft building, and aims to make you the raft building expert you always wanted to be.

We learn about what makes a raft float and the knots required to keep the whole thing together. In the first half of the course we attach barrels to a bolted frame before launching the raft and going on a short tour.

In the second half of the course, we build a raft from scratch using wooden poles and ropes to hold the component parts together, before trying to launch the raft and hoping it stays together.

During the course we play a few raft games so expect to get wet. Wetsuits can be provided should you require one.

This course is suited to anyone aged 13 or older.
