Biggest squad ever sent

Two charter flights will take the Isle of Man team to Jersey for the NatWest Island Games today.

It's the biggest squad from the Island to travel to the event - 218 competitors and 47 officials will fly the Manx flag in 14 sports at the 16th Games.

The first flight is due to leave Ronaldsway at 10.30am with the second scheduled for 2.40pm.

The Opening Ceremony takes place tomorrow evening in St. Helier.

All the Islands competing bring water from home which is then poured into a water feature.

Isle of Man General Team Manager Jill Gillings is already in Jersey and is hoping team management remember an extra passenger is needed today:-
