Default Race boat sacrificial bonfire

OMG - This photo is too hard to look at
IMO, setting fire to race boats is PURE SACRILEGE!!!

Well, not really....

It's just the annual Newberg Oregon Memorial Day Regatta, which always includes a Saturday night bonfire, in which a boat or two (which have outlived their use) are added to the bonfire as a sacrifice - - similar to a Viking funeral tradition.
