Duck Race

The 2022 Great Looe River Duck Race will take place on 28th August 2022 at 13:00 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 5 ducks to complete the course (as determined by the duck catchers in the river) will win 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).
