Will the ducks end up in the Sea?  No, is the quick answer.  Our little yellow ducks who are used year after year after year, spend the winter and spring in training for this wonderful event, plunge into the River Lym at Higher Mill Flats, paddle madly down stream to be safely scooped up by the wonderful Lyme Regis RNLI and a very, very big net at Jordan Flats.  The ducks are then packed up and have a lovely long summer break before their training begins again in the Winter.
