Veterans sailing charity Turn to Starboard is hosting a grueling 48-hour Rival Survival Challenge at a mystery rural location in Devon on Friday 10th May and they’re looking for volunteers to go back to basics in a series of exciting and realistic survival scenarios…
Working in teams, participants will brave the wilderness while testing their mental and physical stamina, speed and creativity to outscore opponents and take home the winner’s trophy. Experienced survival instructors will be on hand to give advice on essential survival skills such as shelter building, fire lighting, bush craft, water purification, self-sufficiency, foraging and natural navigation.
The fun event takes place at mystery location on the south coast of Devon across varied terrain including ancient woodland, secret beaches, smugglers coves, rivers and historic buildings.
Event Marketing Coordinator, Izzy Galloway, said: “Whether you are looking to take part as an individual, with friends or work colleagues, Rival Survival is a great event for team bonding, learning new skills and having plenty of fun! Those brave enough to sign up will be deprived of modern amenities for 48 hours and will take part in a series of military-themed challenges against other teams.
“Entrants can expect to build a shelter, light a fire, forage for food, navigate the terrain, swim, kayak, make a raft from natural materials, learn emergency first aid and evacuation skills and tackle an assault course before zip wiring to the finish line. The challenge is open to everyone, including individuals, groups and corporates, and no previous experience is necessary.
