LONDON, Jan. 17 (UPI) -- A company that specializes in organizing events said it is seeking contestants to form the British team for the Naked Sledding World Championship in Germany.

Chillisauce.co.uk, which organizes events including bachelor and bachelorette parties, as well as corporate gatherings and group weekend trips, said it is taking applications from Britons interested in shedding their clothing and taking a toboggan ride down a hill in front of about 25,000 spectators for the fifth annual event Feb. 15 in Braunlage, Germany, the Telegraph reported Thursday.

"This is not a race for the shy and retiring," the agency said. "We're looking for contestants who are up for a laugh. And although the selection policy in the past seems to be slightly skewed toward those who look good naked, don't let that put you off."

German radio station RTL, which organizes the event, said two British participants are being sought to compete.
