NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., July 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — DISC Sports & Spine Center ("DISC") will be the title sponsor of the 2021 Governor’s Cup regatta, teaming with the Balboa Yacht Club to support the International Youth Match Racing Championship for the second time in three years. Additionally, DISC founding director Dr. Robert S.

DISC has long been a champion of competitive sailing and its notable skippers and strategists, counting such prestigious names as America’s Cup winners Jimmy Spithill and Tom Slingsby among the patients the center has helped return to sport.
"We are proud to support such a wonderful event with the distinction of having started the careers of so many top sailors around the world," Dr. Bray said. "Sailing is also a personal passion of mine, and I enjoy being able to give back to a sport that has given so much to me."
