Nick Mathias with the winning duck from the Westport Sunrise Rotary's annual Great Duck Race. The duck's name is "Maker Duck", from the Westport Mini Maker Faire.
The “Maker Duck” is a tribute to all of the sponsors of the inaugural Westport Mini Maker Faire that occurred on April 28, 2012. Along with flags with the logos of all of the sponsors displayed on the duck, the duck can be remotely controlled, driven around and includes large, colored LEDs that decorate it.
