Join the Team

For both Dane and Willie, sailing and their watermen lifestyles have been a lifelong journey. Their love for the ocean, and drive to be the best have led them to the pursuit of Olympic dreams, and the pair are currently working hard to reach the top. In order to stand on the podium at the 2016 Olympics, the boys will need a team behind them who are willing to dream big.

Currently the duo is focusing on the water practice time on dialing in boat handling. This requires high quality equipment to prevent breakdowns, and ensure that as much time as possible gets spent productively. To help provide the team with Olympic caliber equipment, you can make a tax deductible contribution to team McBride.Wilson in one of two ways:

Hold Fast
*Hold Fast: To bear down, grit it out, stay the course; to hold fast to your dreams
Originally a nautical term probably borrowed from the Dutch “houd vast” (hold tight) referring to the importance of securely gripping a ship’s rigging.
