We’re Out to Win an Olympic Medal and Need Your Support

The McBride.Wilson campaign is an Olympic program with the goal of being the team selected to represent the United States in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio De Janeiro. We are one of the top four teams vying for one coveted spot on the US Sailing Team in the 49er class. However, what sets Mcbride.Wilson apart from the competition is our unique, dynamic training program for rapid improvement which incorporates technology-testing, data-tracking, and a comprehensive conditioning regiment, in addition to our sheer passion for the sport. McBride.Wilson’s winning history and international experience in skiff sailing also gives us a sharp edge going into the two-year countdown.

To Get There We Need Your Direct Financial Support

Our immediate needs are funds for the purchase of a new boat and to cover the expenses of our first event, the 49er World Championship in Santander, Spain this September. We would like your support in two capacities; first to help rally the community in your area behind our cause, and second to help get us to Spain by making a tax deductible donation.
