What a fantastic day.
The Lord Mayor & Sheriff
expertly drew the Lucky Dip Ducks
then guided the great splash down for the race.
The Ducks as ever were completely unpredictable
first spreading out into a colourful circle
then defying the river current
the wind pushed them upstream
finally reaching the finish-line after 15minutes
of nail biting torment!

About Great Norwich Duck Race

The Great Norwich Duck Race was conceived by and is run by the
1st Norwich Sea Scout Group as a fund raising event for scouting in & around Norwich This year funds raised will go towards scouting activities at 1st Norwich and other groups involved with the event. As well as the prize monies mentioned elsewhere a contribution is also made to the Lord Mayors charity. In the event of unforeseen circumstances which prevent the race being run the promoter will decide the winners by a lottery of the entrants.
