PILLAGE 'N THE
VILLAGE BED RACE REGATTA
NO EXCUSES FOR 2017!
Build and race your own bed OR borrow
one of ours!
Palmyra’s Pirates of the Erie Canal require
rascally racers for the eighth running of the
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 Pillage ‘N the
Village Bed Race Regatta 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 this year the all-wise and
minty-fresh Race Commodore Captain Mojito has
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.
In addition, the
good Captain would like you to know that he has
waived all entry fees and 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!”
