Opportunity to register for 2014/15 season if not already done so.

The 2nd Annual Great Duck Race
At the 10am hooter, Jordan Parkinson, the event's official starter, let the 1000 anaticulae onto the river. With an outflowing tide and a breeze at their tails (at least for those that were the right way up) a record time was assured. They jostled quickly for position in the early chevron formation. With 20m to go the clear leader owned by club member Matt Robertson, looked sure to be the winner, but out on his own he was exposed to cross winds which pushed him towards the far bank and with just 5m to go he beached in a little stone harbour of anatine proportions. That left number 945 and number 301 floating past and into a renewed sprint paddle finish. Number 945 won by a feather, with 301 second, five seconds later 572 outpaddled 477 for third with 969 taking fifth place. The pack finished closely behind testing those that were helping fish them out of the river as some seemed intent on making it into the Ramsey harbour. Thanks to all our supporters, the river helpers and to Gail for putting on the sausage baps. The official result was:
1st place Ben Horne £150
2nd place Geoff Garner £75
3rd place John Taylor £50
4th place Gail Corrin £30
5th place Keally Smethurst £20
