Tin Bath Championships 9th July 2016
Saturday 9th July
1:30pm until 5:30pm
It's time to start designing and plugging up your tin baths for the 2016 races!
The annual World Tin Bath Championship was started in 1971. It takes place in Castletown Harbour with nearly a hundred competitors and thousands of spectators. Being the only race of its kind, the event draws eager tin bath racers into cold harbour waters. As well as bath races, there are also snake races, short entertainment displays, and even a rope drop. A fun afternoon for the whole family, as wacky races hit the Isle of Man.
The races are connected with the Castletown Ale Drinkers Society, who are dedicated to raising money for local charities. The money raised from the small entry fee to the World Tin Bath Championship is donated to a local charity.
