The Plattsburgh Mayor's Cup Regatta and Festival started on Lake Champlain 40 years ago this summer, and organizers are hoping to elevate the profile of the annual event.

"This is a huge event for us to have every year, and we want this year's to be bigger and better," Mayor Colin Read said.

"We've had this for 40 years now, and we hope to have another 40 years for people to enjoy."


Organizers of this year's Mayor's Cup unveiled the schedule of events at a news conference Friday at City Hall.

Events will be held from Thursday, July 6, through Sunday, July 9, with the big sailboat race on Saturday, July 8.
