Newport Pagnell Duck Race

Olney Ladies duck makes her race debut

DUCK Race Report

After a slow start, as she's quite a spirited duck and there was a bit of jostling with some of the other ducks, eventually she realised she was in a race and started catching up the main flock. Unfortunately she then got distracted by the beer tent and doubled back, after a little intervention from a guy in a wetsuit (who promised her a gin at the finish line) she stopped fannying around and overtook a bunch of tea totallers on the outside to finish strongly in 7th place! What a duck!!

Thank you to Kristianne Gray for the report and the on shore duck support!
And a massive thanks to Scarlet Donne for the amazing duck painting job
