About Mobility Cup

Mobility Cup 2000 - Montreal, QC

Mobility Cup 2000 was held at Point Claire Yacht Club (PCYC) founded in 1879 and located on Lac Saint-Louis with a long tradition of supporting sailing regattas. PCYC is the home base for Montreal’s Association Québécoise de Voil Adaptée (AQVA) chapter for sailors with disabilities. 

Fifty sailors competed in 26 sail boats assembled from many regions of Canada and the United States. This was an international event with about a third of the competitors from outside of Canada.

MC-2000 strived to promote public awareness of the capabilities of people with severe disabilities where sailors with mobility impairments, including high level quadriplegics, could develop skills to sail independently and to race in an international class regatta. MC-2000 was also instrumental in developing some of the new Mobility Cup racing format and rules still in use to-day.
