Launching the yellow ducks at the July 2010 Duck raceSUNDAY 15th JULY 2018 - SIDMOUTH LIONS GREAT DUCK DERBY on the River Sid in the Byes, Sidmouth from 2.00pm to about 4.30pm. 

The ‘Duck Derby’ consists of two large Duck races on the River Sid,  plus additional attractions for children, including Duck & Spoon races, other fun games, a Big Slide and Bouncy Castle and tastey ice creams.  


This year, because of a shortage of water in the River Sid, the races were all started in the cycle bridge area and commenced at 2.00 pm with the children’s Duck & Spoon races. These were followed at 2.45 pm by the Corporate Duck Race, for the red ducks sponsored by local businesses. 

The main public Duck Race started at 3.00 pm when hundreds of little yellow ducks were launched into the Sid from the cycle bridge, to race downstream to the finish line by the weir at Salcombe Road. Tickets for the yellow ducks were £1 each and there were cash prizes totalling £1,015 to be won.  This year’s main charity beneficiaries were the Sidmouth Admiral Nurse Appeal and Devon Freewheelers, the medical emergency supplies delivery service. 
Our 2018 Duck Derby raised  £5,200 for charity!
