Pirates invaded Holden Beach Saturday and absconded with all the loot.
Actually, they swam, bicycled and ran away with all the loot.

“It feels good to win,” said James Haycraft, 28. “The hardest leg was the run because my hat kept blowing off, and a Speedo is not the most comfortable thing to run in.”
