The Rotary Clubs of the North Shore organized another successful modified “Duck Race” at West Vancouver’s Ambleside Beach. Talon Helicopter’s owner Peter Murray donated an aircraft, pilot and ground crew to drop thousands of small yellow ducks into a boomed off section of Ambleside Beach. NSR Kayak Team members Keith Klapstein and Dale Wiedman use their expertise in safely making sure all the ducks empty from the net. Talon pilot Derek Riendeau hovered patiently while in radio contact from the beach with NSR ground controllers. A special thanks to Burrard Clean for their spill boom and landing craft. This the allowed retrieving dogs to fetch the winning ducks!!!!
