First boats due in the water at midday

The World Championship Viking Longboat Races take place in Peel today.

The first boats are due in the water from midday, starting with the men's team competition.

The ladies teams will follow before the mixed teams complete the action.

As a result, roads around the Weatherglass Corner and the Tongue will be closing from 11.15am, reopening after the presentation of prizes, no later than 6pm.
