Mobility Cup 1993 - Vancouver, BC

The four-day event held at Jericho Sailing Centre, Vancouver, saw racing by 28 competitors from across Canada and the US – with local Vancouver sailors in a minority.

The event is remembered for a world first – if featuring a (mouth operated) sip ‘n’ puff sailboat, which enabled high level tetraplegics to sail. This was the culmination of a two-year high-tech project to “include people with severe disabilities as active participants in our sailing program.” It was put through its paces that year by Larry Boden of Vancouver.
