Duck Race

Sponsored by

The 2024 Great Looe River Duck Race will take place on Saturday 24th August 2024 at 15:30 when 5,000 plastic ducks will be tipped over the Looe Bridge and floated down the river from the bridge to the Lower Ferry Steps. The ticket holders for the first 4 ducks to complete the course (as determined by the duck catchers in the river) won cash prizes as shown in the table of winners below. The proceeds are in aid of the good causes that the Looe Lions support.

Do please note that all ducks are recovered from the river by our ‘duck wranglers’  using  nets across the width of the river ensuring that we do not pollute the sea (or harm any ducks).
