The South West Birdman Competition sees crazy aviators and would-be pilots hurl themselves off Ilfracombe Pier into the icy waters below - all hoping to "fly" the furthest and be crowned champion of the event.
Organised by registered charity Ilfracombe Round Table, the day-long event attracts thousands of people to the town and raises money for local worthy causes.
As well as the main flying event, the South West Birdman Competition will also play host to a day long music festival, food stalls, an ale and cider festival, artisan market and children's entertainment
This year there is even a Pimms and Prosecco tent manned by those kind folks at One Ilfracombe.
The event also includes a live music stage with great music throughout the day, children's entertainment, a bar and barbecue, food stalls, Artisan Market and much more besides.
