Sail-World.com : Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron to host 2013 Mobility Cup
Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron to host 2013 Mobility Cup

2013 Mobility Cup
The Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron is encouraging Canadian and foreign sailors with disabilities to participate in the 2013 Mobility Cup regatta from the 27th-30th of August. The Mobility Cup is considered the most prestigious sailing event for the disabled, giving them the platform to compete and excel in the sport.

The 2013 Mobility Cup is set to be held in Nova Scotia at the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron. Canada’s national regatta for sailors with disabilities takes place from August 27th to the 30th, with arrival and practice taking place from August 24th to the 26th.

Vancouver’s Sam Sullivan founded the Mobility Cup in 1991 by inviting key individuals from other cities to take part in a sailing regatta, whether they had ever sailed before or not, in an effort to promote and grow the sport of disabled sailing. The initiative has been an outstanding success. New disabled sailing organizations began popping up in cities across Canada and the United States. The sport is now world-wide and has been key part of each Paralympics Summer Games since 2000 after being a demonstration sport in 1996.

Each year’s Mobility Cup regatta remains a vehicle for initiating new programs or supporting existing ones. Mobility Cup 2013 at the RNSYS will be no different.

'The RNSYS is looking forward to hosting the 2013 Mobility Cup to help grow disabled sailing programs in the region,' says regatta chair Michael Archibald. 'It will also be an important trial run for the International Federation of Disabled Sailors World Championships the Squadron is hosting in 2014.'

The Mobility Cup is recognized as Canada’s national regatta for sailors with disabilities. Through the use of innovative technology, Canada has become a leader in making sailing accessible to people with all forms of disability. Disabled people from across Canada and the US are invited to participate. This is only the second time the regatta has taken place in Nova Scotia. The Dartmouth Yacht Club hosted the Mobility Cup in 2007.
