Ilfracombe Birdman 2018

The South West Birdman Competition has been running for more than 10 years in Ilfracombe and sees competitors jumping off the pier in an attempt to fly before crashing into the sea.

We rely on a lot of good will and we are always in need of brave or foolhardy jumpers to launch themselves off the pier.

The message to Ilfracombe and North Devon is Come and Support Birdman for a great day out for fun with family and friends!!
