The Challenge

To design and build a raft that can take up to 6 team members along the 1.2km stretch of the Thames and Severn Canal. All by paddle power!

Starting from The Bell, Upper Lock, Stroud along to Capels Mill and back again.

Using whatever materials you can beg, borrow or otherwise source. Raft design is very important as it must be as light in weight as possible to allow you to carry it into and out of the canal.

Another and equally significant part is to raise funds for our nominated charities, the Cotswold Canals Trust, and The Door. We are asking that each crew gathers at least £100 sponsorship.
