The Obama White House

Our friend Maureen McKinnon got to meet the President today!

"There’s no kid in America who can’t look at our Olympic team and see themselves somewhere. That’s part of the reason why we’re successful—because we gather talent from every corner of the globe. And through the years of people arriving—whether it’s in Ellis Island or Angel Island or coming over the Rio Grande; some cases, coming not of their own accord—we’ve become something more than just the sum of our parts. We’ve become Americans together." —President Obama honoring the athletes of Team USA and the U.S. Paralympics: go.wh.gov/p3cgWC

09/02/2016

Although the 2016 Olympics may be done and dusted, there’s still a lot of racing to be done on Rio’s Guanabara Bay, thanks to the Paralympic Games, scheduled for September 7-18.

The United States is sending six sailors to this year’s games who will be competing in three classes: the SKUD-18, the 2.4mR and the Sonar. As with the Olympic squad, this year’s Paralympic team was selected on the basis of how the sailors performed in a pair of international qualifying regattas, including the World Cup Miami regatta this past winter.

Of course, the U.S. Paralympic squad, which is under the direction of head coach Betsy Alison, will also be contending with the same fluky, tidal conditions on Guanabara Bay that make this one of the trickiest Olympic sailing venues in history.

Porteous and McKinnon aboard their SKUD 18

Representing the United States in the doublehanded SKUD-18 skiff class will be first-time Paralympian Ryan Porteous of San Diego, California, and Maureen McKinnon, of Marblehead, Massachusetts, who won Gold in the same class at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, sailing with the late Nick Scandone.

The Sea Gals and the Long Beach Sailing Foundation are financially supporting Maureen and Ryan as they compete for the Gold in Rio. If you want to donate through the LB Sailing Foundation your gift is tax deductible and 100% of your gift will reimburse these sailors.

Send your gift of support via Paypal to [email protected] or send a check to Long Beach Sailing Foundation, 4825 E. Broadway, Long Beach, CA 90803
Memo: Paralympics.

Links for watching them compete will be posted once the games begin on September 17
