Mobility Cup 1998 - Vancouver, BC

Mobility Cup returned to its birthplace, Vancouver, BC, for the 1998 event. This was the most international regatta to date, with 30 competitors from Australia, Puerto Rico, Portugal, the US and, of course, Canada.

It featured seminars for competitors inspired to go home and start their own programs, held in “the Mobility Cup tent” throughout the event.

The 1998 event is memorable for featuring the first ever all Martin 16 fleet.
