There were many close races which were all greatly enjoyed by the competitors. Disabled sailors are continuing to train for the 2017 RE/MAX Mobility Cup, September 11-15 and gained valuable experience at Commodore’s Cup. Looking forward to next year already!!

The Disabled Sailing Association with the Kelowna Yacht Club provide many sailing opportunities throughout the summer for people with disabilities. The program gets people out, learning, enjoying, socializing and competing if they choose. All important things. All accomplished through this sport generously shared by KYC and DSA.”
