We really appreciate all the love and support that Team Porteous/Walker has received. Without your help the Team would not have been able to qualify the United States in the SKUD class for the 2016 Paralympic Summer Games! Cindy Walker has decided to leave the team though and is now crewing for Good Karma Racing with skipper, Sarah Everhart Skeels. Ryan will continue to campaign for Rio as well but is currently in search for a crew. We both will be campaigning for the 2016 Paralympic Games, just now on different teams. Thanks again.
My goal is to represent the United States, compete, and medal in the SKUD 18 class at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I know there is a long road ahead but I am dedicated, enthusiastic, and passionate about the sport.
To get there, my crew and I will be training and competing in national and international regattas in the four years building up to the Paralympic Games. Although running a campaign is rewarding, it is an expensive endeavor. The US Olympic Committee is providing some funding, but the majority of the costs of these regattas falls on us. Please take this journey with us and help us achieve our goal. We appreciate your support!
