The race begins 18 November and ends 31 December. The course takes us from Norfolk, VA, through the Gulf Aden to Kismayu, Somalia and then back to Norfolk, VA (14,014 NM).
$1 = 1 Nautical Mile
Decide which ship/command you want to enter in the race (i.e. USS Bainbridge, USS Bulkeley, USS Vella Gulf). You can also enter fictitious ships/commands (i.e. USS SOS-San Diego, USS Gnarly Goat).
Donations can be made by mail, phone, and via the Raid on Pirate’s Alley event page. In all cases, we’ll need the name of the ship or command that you are entering into the race.
Rally your friends, family and shipmates—any ship or command that has combined donations of $2000 by 31 December will have a named scholarship presented on their behalf in the spring.
Remember…the foundation that ‘travels’ the farthest by 31 December will win! Of course, the real winners are all of the students that will receive scholarships in the spring!
