Canoe Challenge

Expert or beginner and working as a team, canoeing is a great day out 



Bring your team together for some fun filled canoe challenges that will boost morale, enhance communication and bring out all the hidden competitiveness in team members whilst learning new techniques and skills.

In order to prepare teams for the challenges ahead, they will be allocated an instructor and following some general safety advice take to the water, where they will be given some additional safety instructions that are specific to the venue and the event, before commencing the training session that will teach them all they need to know to complete the challenges that lay ahead.


Once all the training has been completed, teams will take on a number of short course race challenges, either against the clock or another team (depending upon group size. These will be round robin style races, set up on different courses of varying degrees of difficulty.

We can follow this with the famous Wraysbury lake treasure hunt in which points are scored for correct navigation, answers to a number of puzzles that paddlers are set en-route and for the overall final positions in the race.


The final scores on the doors and overall team positions will be announced once everyone is back on land, dried off and eagerly awaiting the results. Prizes and braggers rights will be given to the winning team. 


Prizes may also be available for the paddler(s) the instructors deem to be the most improved and also others for things such as a paddler, who couldn't, despite their best efforts, master the techniques for easily controlling their canoes direction, but never gives up trying or smiling (the most enthusiastic).
