Here is a closeup of some of the thousands of rubber duckies that braved the rain for the 26th Annual Great Hawaii Rubber Duckie Race. An interesting thing happened this year that has never happened before. Maybe it was pouring rain or some wind shift but the ducks decided that instead of racing to the finish line they would just float around sometimes moving forward and sometimes even moving backward. The race start time at 1:16pm is optimized for the tide and usually the race is over in a matter of 10-15 minutes but this year the ducks just floated. For the first time ever they actually had to physically move the finish line closer to the ducks before finally declaring a winner (sorry to say it wasn’t my duck but there’s always next year.
