About 2,000 ducks were launched above the Sooke Flats for the Annual Sooke Harbourside Lions’ Rubber Duck Race & Juvenile Diabetes Awareness Day.
The Sooke River’s current was not very strong and a breeze blew in from the southeast. The flotilla of wide-eyed ducks sat.
Despite the efforts of volunteers in kayaks, canoes, boats and on the shore, most ducks moved from the center of the river and made their way back to the starting beach.
Some made it to the finish line – the winner, an upsidedown duck!
