Sun makes duck race fun
WELCOME sunshine greeted the fleets of bobbing yellow plastic ducks as the annual Coffs Harbour Rotary Geoff King Holden Duck Race took over the mouth of Coffs Creek yesterday.
A record field of ducks entered the Corporate Duck Race, sending Rotarians and Surf Club helpers scrambling to round up stragglers to muster the field of close to 600 ducks – the largest of the day’s five races.
Coffs Harbour Surf Lifesaving Club is one of the major beneficiaries of the charity fundraiser this year.
“Every year we have to replace some ducks – some get marooned and some head to New Zealand,” said Coffs Harbour Rotary community services director Graham Kell.
