They are also on sale at Narooma Dental Surgery (opposite Narooma Visitors Centre during surgery business hours.

Race coordinator Charmaine White said the 1,000 ducks will be dropped off Narooma Bridge about 3.30pm on Saturday the 26th.

‘We’re hoping for perfect weather, good crowds and a quick race downstream to the Apex Park boat ramp,’ she said.

The first duck across the finishing line wins $1,000. The last duck wins $100.

Proceeds will go towards the Club’s Tertiary Scholarship Fund for students from Narooma High.

Donations will also be made to Narooma Surf Club in appreciation of their assistance and to Bermagui CRABS (Cancer Research Advocate Bikers) who lend us the ducks.
