Whether you’re a group of friends looking for something different, or arranging a team-building event, our Boatbuilding Experience Days offer a unique opportunity to get hands on as a boat-builder in training and then actually get out on the water in a craft just like the one you’ve helped to build.

Have fun and do a little good at the same time

The money we generate through our Boatbuilding Experience Days gets ploughed back into our community work to tackle isolation, build confidence and support better mental health. What could be better than knowing you are helping to support a brilliant community project?

Coached by an experienced boat builder, you will learn about and try your hand at a range of techniques used to build our 22ft St Ayles coastal rowing skiffs. You will also have the opportunity to row a boat, and maybe race team-mates in a friendly competition.

Refreshments and lunch can be provided at our water-side location, or we can recommend a number of great eateries nearby.

How much does it cost?

We are very happy to tailor your team day to meet your needs and can provide you with meeting space and basic tools (e.g. flipcharts, projector etc) for additional activities you may wish to undertake.

Costs per head are as follows, with a minimum charge equivalent to 4 people and a maximum of 10 participants per group (working on the boat in shifts).

Boatbuilding Only (half day), per person£99
Build and Row Experience (full day, excluding lunch), per person£199
Snacks, refreshments and light lunch, per personfrom £25
