Raft building in York

29 Apr 2009

With milder weather coming our way, getting outdoors on your stag weekend seems much more appealing than in the darker months of the year. We’d even go so far to say that hitting the water in the next few months could be very entertaining and so here we have one of our most exciting water sports package – raft building. We offer this activity in a few locations in the country but it is particularly popular in York, probably because of the great night life you can experience there after you’ve finished messing about in the water.

What is it?

Raft building is a fantastic way to get cooperation and banter in your group. It’s fun, it’s competitive and you could end up soaked. This is ideal if there are a large group of you so you can split into teams. After a safety briefing, you and your stag party will be given the essential items you need to build your raft, and a little time to plan and put it together before testing it out on the water.  Have you and your team got what it takes to make a water worthy raft or will you be left in shit creek without a paddle?

Why Raft Building?

In short, this is a good laugh for big groups and it keeps you all busy so there’s no waiting round to take turns on an activity, you’re all involved on your stag weekend and it’s a great way to break the ice as you have to communicate and work together in order to beat the other team. The guys we’ve sent have loved the building part of it and have found it to be very competitive.

Why have a York stag weekend?

More stag groups have been demanding York as a location in the last few years and despite its refined culture and history, it has proven to be a location where the night life is second to none. With a booming student population there are a large number of bars and clubs that exist for crazy weekends and stag parties looking for fun.

Where to go?

We can arrange for the VIP treatment in York for your stag party including pre paid entry into clubs and lap dancing venues so you just need to turn up with a smile whilst we look after everything else. For pub crawls,  along Coney Street and New Street you’ll find your recognised chain pubs like HA! HA! Bar, The Varsity and Pitcher and Piano. Down Ousegate you’ll also find The Slug and Lettuce. You can also find some classic pubs  like the Lowther on Cumberland Street. There’s also a great deal of stag friendly clubs, just call today to find out more about where to go on your York stag weekend.
