Cardboard boat building event
Construct and compete - the best teambuilding event on the market!
Cardboard boat building challenge by your teams from just simple materials, cardboard, plastic sheet and tape, capable of holding two people to stay afloat long enough to complete a race.
Suitable for large or small groups. Perfect on a tropical Phuket beach or your hotel swimming pool.
By far our most popular teambuilding activity is the Cardboard Boat Building Race. This is a fantastic activity for getting everyone working together and competing to build and race a boat made from the most unlikely materials. The Race can be conducted on the beach in our exclusive watersports centre in the beautiful Ao Yon Bay in Phuket or at other locations.
Your group will be split into teams of between 8 and 16 and given the instructions needed to build a cardboard boat that will float safely with two people inside. The boat must be capable of racing out about 50 metres and back to the beach. The teams are given about 2 to 2½ hours to complete the building of the boats. Points are awarded for quality of build, creativity, efficient use of resources, teambuilding skills and, of course, for completing the boat in time.
This really is the ultimate teambuilding activity. Challenging, memorable and above all fun. They'll take away memories and learn a lot about the power of cooperation.
Lunch can be served after the building phase of the activity or after the race. A Beach Barbecue is most popular, but our generously sized and delicious gourmet sandwiches are also available.
On the start signal the cardboard boat crews start to paddle furiously and the fun begins; soon everyone will be laughing. Each race involves 2 people in each boat and points are given according to the place the teams achieve in each race (which of course requires staying upright!).
All the team members can race at least once; as long as they built the boat well enough to stay afloat that is. Buoyancy aids are worn by all contestants and there is always an experienced safety team watching over the event. So everyone will have fun and stay safe.
