Sunrise Rotary Mayor’s Cup Regatta
July 14, 2011
Plattsburgh, New York
Sunrise Rotary of Plattsburgh invites you and your crew to the 35th Annual Mayor’s Cup Regatta,
signature event of the Mayor’s Cup Festival, Saturday, July 14, 10AM. An estimated 100 boats
participate in this premiere, international sailing competition on historic Lake Champlain, attracting
racers from New England, Quebec, and New York. It includes competitive races in three divisions -
Cruising, Racing, and Multihull with prizes and trophies for all classes. By popular demand the course
area will be the same for the Cruising, Racing, and Multihull Divisions allowing for a better opportunity
to adjust the course length for the Cruising Division based on the conditions.
BBQ and awards follow the Regatta at the Naked Turtle Tent with BBQ from 4-6PM, and awards
presented for both the Regatta and Parade of Lights at 6PM. The BBQ is open to everyone – not just
sailors – and tickets may be purchased at the Hospitality Desk until 4PM.
