Do you need the best teambuilding event? Suitable for large or small groups. Best on the beach, but also possible in your hotel swimming pool.
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.
One of our most popular mass participation activities is Cardboard Boat Racing. The activity takes place at our dedicated water activity lake at Ocean Marina in Pattaya (Jomtien). The lake is beautiful and safe. It has a Thai style restaurant nearby and a dedicated team building facility with shade and restrooms. Review the movie below to see the quality of provision and the nature of the event.
The groups are split into teams of 8-16 persons and given the task of making a carboard boat that will float safely with two paddlers inside. The boat must be be capable of racing from the shore around a flag just 50meteres off shore and back to the beach. The teams are given just 2 - 2.5 hours to complete the task.
The team building activity is carefully organised and monitored by our staff. The location is superb and the challenge of making your own design or that of a template (provided by Sail in Asia) is just one of the decisions that our teams make. Extra points are awarded for original design, completing the task in the allocated time, good teamwork and division of labour and so on. This is where you see your teams rising to the challenge of the ultimate corporate team building!
