Mobility Cup 1996 - Vancouver, BC

Touted as the “biggest and best ever” Mobility Cup, the event returned to Vancouver – having been held in Victoria, BC the previous year.

Mobility Cup 1996 was held at Royal Vancouver Yacht Club during the last week of July, and featured a one-day race clinic followed by four days of races. The event was sandwiched between weekend heats of the WAVES regatta, an international one-design event – competitors from the WAVES and Mobility Cup events socialized, raising awareness of sailors with disabilities.

This year’s event is memorable for featuring the debut of the Martin 16 sloop.
