|Additional Regatta Information:|
The Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron is the host club in 2013 for Canada's national regatta for sailors with disabilities. Racing 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 USA. 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.
