BBC Jersey is at the Island Games in the Isle of Wight

The BBC Jersey team will be broadcasting from the Isle of Wight for the XIV NatWest Island Games which open on Saturday.

Veteran sports presenter Roger Bara is leading the team and will host six editions of his breakfast programme from the Games live on BBC Radio Jersey.

Over 200 athletes in 14 disciplines have set sail from Jersey bound for the Isle of Wight.

They will be based at a Caravan Park in Shanklin from where they will travel to locations across the island to compete.

Clare Burton and Mike Wilkins from BBC Channel Islands News will be gathering updates from all the sports featuring islanders and people will be able to follow the action live from the Isle of Wight each evening Monday-Friday on BBC One at 1830 BST.

Reporters Claire Peters and Nafisa Sayani will be taking us behind the scenes at The Games and discovering what life is like in the Isle of Wight.

There will be updates on the BBC Jersey website throughout the week of the festival including results and medal roundups.

Wight is home to one of the largest garlic farms in the British Isles and it has got a reputation as the "ghost island" given the number of spooky incidents reported there.

Emma Chambers hopes to go on a ghost hunt and all of the Jersey team will be looking to find the people and places that matter across six days of competition.
