Mobility Cup 2001 - Victoria, BC

The Mobility Cup returned to Victoria – it was previously there in 1995 – when it was again hosted at the Canadian Forces Sailing Association (CFSA), Esquimalt Squadron.

The 2001 regatta was sailed in the Martin 16. There were 30 sailors in Gold Fleet, 28 in Silver. Between both fleets, 16 sailors used windlass and autohelm to sail their boats.

According to Doug Nutting, executive director of Recreation Integration Victoria: “Mobility Cup 2001 was the largest Mobility Cup held to that date, and may still retain that title.

“After an incredible regatta which ended September 9, 2001, unfortunatelythe world changed on the morning of 9/11, making it extremely difficult for many of the MC 2001 participants to travel home.”

In preparation for hosting MC2001 our host club CFSA, Esquimalt installed accessible washrooms with roll in showers, with handheld showers, fold-down shower seats, canted mirrors and more. All of these improvements continue to benefit our sailors today.
