Entries open for Tin bath championships

Entries have opened for the world-famous tin bath championships taking place next month.

The 49th World Tin Bath Championships will get underway at Castletown Harbour on August 22 after getting the green light to take place following the relaxing of social distancing restrictions in June.

The 48th annual occasion last year raised around £7,000 for charitable causes with Abigail Morgan and David Watt winning the women's and men's races respectively.

Now, its organisers - the Castletown Ale Drinkers Society - are inviting people to take part, with entry forms, rules and regulations available at worldtinbaths.com - e-mail enquiries can be sent to enquiries@worldtinbaths.com.

Meanwhile, even though entries for the snake race have now closed, the society is calling on intrepid 'Birdmen and Birdwomen' to take on the Man Powered Flights challenge.

The challenge sees individuals building a craft and fly from the catwalk across the harbour by using only your arms or legs to propel you to glory.

Anyone wanting to get involved is asked to submit their entries before the deadline at Midnight on Sunday, August 9.
