An Australian swimming club has lost its mascot – a giant inflatable rubber duck.
Daphne the duck is the Cockburn Masters Swimming Club mascot for its events.
Just before the club’s Coogee Beach jetty to jetty swim the duck was caught by a gust of wind and took to the skies.
Roughly the size of a small caravan and with a price tag of AU$900 (NZ$960).
Sightings of Daphne have been reported off the coast, including one by a group of fishermen 15km west of Rottnest Island.
There’s even rumours she’s made it 400km north of Coogee Beach.
