The 10th annual Duck Race, sponsored by the Shelter Island Chamber of Commerce, kicked off Saturday with the pouring of the rubber ducks into Chase Creek.
The beloved race is a fundraiser for the Chamber’s community events. Contestants sponsor a duck that they hope will swim to victory.
As always, $20 bought a duck sponsorship that supports the Chamber and also wins cash prizes for the first three finishers.
This year, the winners were: 1st place Beau Iysogorski, 2nd place Sharon Bales and 3rd place Albert Dickson.
Congratulations to all and hats off to the Chamber for continuing a great Island tradition.
