Jim Mageean and (now, for several years as successor to Rod Shearman) Graeme Knights run maritime singarounds at the Endeavour, 1-3pm from Sunday onwards, and collect for the Whitby lifeboat, rather than for the festival (with the festival's agreement). The themes are sufficiently broadly defined to allow a lot of flexibility in choice of song.

But Wednesday is dedicated to singing shanties. And to selecting the person who must continue to wear the same shirt for the rest of the day, and carry on collecting funds for the Whitby lifeboat for the year until the next festival.

I "won" in 2004.
