This adventure offers a splash of fun with a sink-or-swim nautical adventure that brings out the true pirate nature in everyone. Participants are arranged in teams to design and build their own sea-worthy vessels from a variety of provided materials.
Once finished, each team selects a captain and then launches their craft in a race against the others. Powered by wind, or by sweat on the oars? Built for speed, or simply to stay afloat? The winning team brings home the coveted trophy.

- Leadership in a group
