Help send Team USA to the 2023 PG Worlds

Donation protected
Dear friends,

Every two years the FAI World Championships of Paragliding (aka “Worlds”) gives nations a chance to compete in racing paragliders - one of the coolest games on earth! This May, the Worlds will be held in the French Alps - one of the classic racing arenas in paragliding.

This edition of the Worlds comes at a time when the competition scene in the US has been burgeoning, with more pilots than ever interested in competitions at all levels. We want to continue on that trajectory, leading our nation towards the top echelon of the paragliding world.

A little about the team:
We’re immensely proud to be fielding a very talented, competitive team this year. Josh Cohn and Andy Macrae have been competing nationally and internationally for over 40 years combined. Evan Bouchier is currently ranked in the top 100 in the world. And we’re excited to announce that this will be the first year any nation has sent more than one scoring female team pilot to the Worlds! Violeta Jimenez and Galen Kirkpatrick have been racing hard at almost every high-level competition for the past couple of years, including the PWC Superfinal. We’re making history, y’all!

What can you expect from us:
Reports on how we’re training together, what’s working for us as a team mentally and technically, and what we’re learning before, during, and after the competition. You can follow us at @usparaglidingteam and

Our ask:
We are asking for your help to cover the costs of the competition and coaching so we can field a strong, unified, well-prepared team that will represent the US with pride and distinction.

We’re also working on a sweet Team USA jersey design as a gift for $500 and up donors. To get your hands on a jersey from the first batch, please donate by April 1st!

We appreciate your support and involvement! Please share this with your local clubs and anyone you think would be interested in supporting the team.
