Mobility Cup 2020, which was originally scheduled to be hosted by Able Sail Toronto and the National Yacht Club, has been postponed to 2021 due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. The dates will be announced at a later time.
Consequently, the Mobility Cup that was scheduled to be hosted by the Northern Yacht Club in Sydney, Nova Scotia in 2021 will now be held in 2022.
Disabled sailing has empowered, motivated and enhanced the lives of people living with disabilities across the country and beyond. Although it is a relatively newer sport with a sparser history, it continues to attract people to the water and provide opportunities for challenge, excitement and freedom.
Accessible sailing allows everybody to participate and experience everything being on the water has to offer.
For persons with a disability, the sense of freedom and independence associated with sailing is unrivalled.
Thanks to adaptive technology, even people with severe physical limitations can compete equally with able-bodied persons.
Sailing enables those with disabilities to enrich their lives and build confidence in a way no other similar activity can.
Sailing gave me the tools, community and knowledge to learn the skills that I use today.
