The Wanaka Rotary Club recently organised their annual Duck Race and Fundraiser, and Sidekick Wanaka were excited to help get a duck to the start line!

There were a lot of ideas from the team as to how we should kit out our duck. There were prizes for best dressed, and we were hopeful Covid restrictions would be lifted so the ducks could race down Bullock Creek as well, so an exciting costume that would perform well on the water was the order of the day.

In the end, it was decided our duck should take his cue from our Sidekick Guy, and be dressed in pink with a cape, glasses and kite for added sail-power!

Keighley took on the job of dressing the duck, and we hope you’ll agree, the results looked good!

On the day, another duck took out style honours, and the race was unable to go ahead. But Rotary has taken all the ducks and hopes to race them when restrictions are lifted.
