A soggy Knaresborough Duck Race 2014

3 January 2014

The 2014 Knaresborough Duck Race went ahead despite awful conditions on New Years Day.

Due to the weather the number of spectators on the day was understandably far less than usual which resulted in correspondingly lower sales.

Approximately 1/3 of the ducks went unsold.

The organisers, Knaresborough Cricket Club, have said they would like to thank everyone who helped on and turned out to watch on the day.

As a result of lower sales, we pulled out the first 15 ducks, in the knowledge that some would be unsold. We felt this was a very fair way of doing things. The numbers of the winning ducks are:

Winning numbers 376, 311, 1117, 3461, 1112, 1168, 2669, 839, 270, 3804, 793, 230, 1737, 224, 2470.

All proceeds from the day will go to Henshaws Society for the Blind.
