Mobility Cup 1991 - Vancouver, BC
In 1991, Sam Sullivan, tetraplegic founder of the Disabled Sailing Association of BC, envisioned a sailing regatta to promote public awareness of the capacities of people with disabilities. This was held in Vancouver, BC, home of the DSA-BC. The event was held on the sheltered waters of English Bay.
“It was important to have people come together and celebrate their achievements, and to do that in the form of a race,” said Sam.
Following the success of the regatta, organizers realized they had a potential national event on their hands.
