HUNDREDS of ducks floated down Beer Brook on Sunday in a dazzling sight marking the annual village's lifeboat week.
Villagers and holiday makers gathered to watch Lyme Regis RNLI perform a display before one of its members, John Cable, started the race.
Wendy Cummins, secretary of Seaton, Beer and District Branch of the RNLI, said: "It was excellent. We had a great amount of support and everyone had a great time."
It is not known how much money was raised through the race but it is hoped it will be in the region of �400.
