Raft Building at Bears Rails By Johnnie Shannon on 13 June 2021 (updated 17 August 2021) In Explorers, Front Page / 0 comments The Explorers spent an afternoon and evening at the fabulous space of Bears Rails, hidden away in the north east of Windsor Great Park. It was pioneering time; the task – to build a lake-worthy raft from just natural objects that could be found nearby. Oh, and huge barrels and batons and a selection of rope. The result was HMS Sinkable and HMS Leaky. To their credit, both made it into the water intact and there was an exciting race across the lake and back, cheered on by the Cubs who had returned from their afternoon hike. After a healthy BBQ, there was entertainment around the camp fire and then, after the Cubs departed, a more reflective time, enjoying the spectacular pyrotechnics that Christian had brought along. Design……Float…Relax!
