DISC Sports & Spine Center in Newport Beach has renewed its partnership with the Governor’s Cup. The sponsorship underscores DISC’s ongoing commitment to promoting sailing across generations while supporting the health of the sport’s athletes.
DISC returns as title sponsor of the Governor’s Cup, teaming with the Balboa Yacht Club to support the International Youth Match Racing Championship for the third time in four years.
The 55th Annual Governor’s Cup (known affectionately as the “GovCup”) is the oldest and most prestigious youth match racing regatta in the world, taking place July 25 through 30 off the coast of Newport Beach.
GovCup alumni, who hail from 16 countries and five continents, are among the most famous and successful international sailors. DISC founding director Dr. Robert S. Bray, Jr. will also continue his role as “fleet surgeon,” assisting with member health and advising the Club on safety protocols.
“As a longtime sailor myself, I am proud to support this wonderful organization and the cause it embraces, which is certainly near and dear to my heart,” Dr. Bray said. “To get behind GovCup is also truly an investment in the future – assuring that sailing’s next generations have the opportunity to strive for excellence and push the boundaries of the sport they love so much.”
DISC is a long-time champion of competitive sailing and its notable skippers and strategists, and is also an official medical partner of United States SailGP Team, for which its third season is underway.
Led by former DISC patient and two-time America’s Cup champion Jimmy Spithill, Team USA competes in a series of intense, high-tech races around the globe. DISC provides orthopedic and sports medicine care for the team athletes throughout the season, including onsite support.
DISC Sports & Spine Center is a premier provider of spine care, orthopedics, pain management and sports medicine. With a state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center in Newport Beach and full-service clinic in Marina del Rey, DISC has set a new standard for high-acuity, minimally invasive spine surgery and orthopedic sports medicine surgery in an outpatient setting, both safely and on a cost-effective basis.
