Durban Duck Day

Durban Duck Day is a really simple concept - thousands of numbered rubber bath ducks are released simultaneously to float, with wind assistance, towards a demarcated finish post. The first duck to reach the finish point wins up to R100 000 (One Hundred Thousand Rand) for the person who has "bought" that duck. R10 from the sale of each duck goes into the prize pool, and a maximum of 10000 (Ten Thousand) ducks will participate in the race.
