Float Your Boat – River Tees Rediscovered

Float Your Boat-River Tees Rediscovered

Join Groundwork and the River Tees Rediscovered team to help us design, make and float mini boats using recyclable materials and things collected from the Tees.

Our ‘Float your Boat’ challenge will test your ability to design and build sea worthy vessels with materials foraged from the Tees Valley;

  • paper boats,
  • milk carton ships,
  • plastic bottle canoes,
  • yoghurt pot rafts,
  • plastic bag coracles and much much more..

Your imagination’s the limit, spend as little or as long as you’d like designing, decorating and floating boats.

We’ll have paddling pools to test which boats float, a drain pipe courses to race the sea worthy vessels along and lots of competitions throughout the weekend.

Best design, biggest, best decorated, most sustainable, fastest!

You can take part without getting wet but we’re hoping there’ll be splashing so bring spare clothes if you can!

Time: 10am-5pm

Day: Saturday & Sunday
