Mobility Cup 2009 - Toronto, ON

The largest Mobility Cup held in recent years, with 47 sailors over three fleets – it’s probably second in size only to the 2001 event, with a staggering 58 participants!

Held in Toronto, it included the 2.4 Metre North American Championships in conjunction with the Mobility Cup. The 2.4mR is the single person discipline for the upcoming 2012 and 2016 Paralympic Games.

It followed on from an all-weekend free race clinic, and included a day’s practice and four of racing.

Mobility Cup 2009 chairmen Danny McCoy, Jeff Levine and Drew Robertson wrote: “Ten years ago in the summer of 1999, The Mobility Cup came to Toronto and left in its wake the Disabled Sailing Association of Ontario and moreover what has become the country’s largest sailing program for persons with a disability.

“We are so proud to be able to look back at an amazing decade of being the sole providers of full time access to Toronto’s waterfront and the sport of sailing to the Disabled community of the Greater Toronto Area.”
