On Saturday morning, boats will participate in the Mayor's Cup Regatta, the premiere sailing competition on Lake Champlain. The Mayor’s Cup Regatta includes competitive races in three divisions - Cruising, Racing, and Multihull with prizes for all classes. 
The one-day celebration at the iconic Plattsburgh City Beach will include a 5K race, kayak rides, a cornhole tournament, live music, and much more for the whole family to enjoy!
We are once again working with students from CV-TEC for our iconic t-shirt design! This is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and proceeds help support our local and international projects.

The "Spirit of Ianelli" Award - NOW ACCEPTING 2023 NOMINATIONS
The "Spirit of Ianelli" Award was established in 2010 in honor of the late Mayor John Ianelli, former Mayor of the City of Plattsburgh, and co-founder of the Mayor’s Cup Regatta in 1978. This honor is bestowed upon one individual – sailor or landlubber – who exemplifies the same “community does matter” spirit that inspired Mayor Ianelli over 40 years ago, empowering our lake community to thrive, not only on race day but every day. 
We are proud to announce our 2022 honorees Julia Devine and Amy Guglielmo
