Amazing decorated ducks
The odd Round Table member falling foul of the incoming tide and getting very wet.

Ladies Dinghy Race - Victoria MarinaTeams of ladies compete for a coveted prize by paddling a dinghy containing four of their team across the mouth of the marina, there they pick up two additional competitors and return to the starting point.
The twist with this event is that no oars are permitted and all participants must remain in the boat, no easy feat when you've 6 people frantically paddling a small inflatable dingy.

Fancy dress

Poorly made rafts disintegrating around their passengers
Guernsey Fire Service hosing down the competitors from the side lines.

Tug of war - Victoria Marina (Albert Pier side)
Two teams participate in this traditional event, with the twist that they are side by side, not opposing one another. The rope goes across the mouth of the harbour with a pulley on the other side. The losing team is the one that ends the bout by falling into the harbour.
Look out for:
Some very wet builders and scaffolders

Man-Powered Flight - Victoria Marina
