GMC SOFTWARE PILLAGE 'N THE VILLAGE
BED RACE REGATTA


NO EXCUSES FOR 2017!
Build and race your own bed OR borrow one of ours!

Historic Palmyra’s Pirates of the Erie Canal require rascally racers for the eighth running of the GMC Software Pillage ‘N the Village Bed Race Regatta during Palmyra Pirate Weekend, on Saturday, August 12, 2017 in Palmyra, NY.  And this year, you don’t even have to make your bed!

The Bed Race follows a Grand Parade and streaks straight through the heart of historic Palmyra’s 19th century Main Street business district, with five-person crews competing head-to-head against other running raiders and scurrying scallywags for a cash prize and other treasure.

In prior years, racers were asked to build and run their own racing schooners, but last year the all-wise and minty-fresh Race Commodore Captain Mojito directed the building of a six racing bed fleet, ready to roll. All you have to do this year is bring a team of five! Racers are certainly welcome to build their own racing bed as in years prior, just consult the official rules and entry form for complete bed specifications, available for download below. Enter your team today along with an entry fee of $25 per team.

In addition, the good Captain has deemed a $100 prize for the winning team. “It were a good year for plunderin’,” explained the munificent Mojito. “And though my bounty may not be as boundless as the sea, me booty ain’t too bad!”
