We are now accepting sponsors for the 2023 Mayor's Cup Regatta & Festival! 
We hope you will join Plattsburgh Sunrise Rotary Club this year as we host the 46th annual Mayor's Cup
Regatta & Festival, Plattsburgh's most time-honored and highly anticipated summer tradition on Lake
Champlain on July 8, 2023. Last year’s Mayor’s Cup raised over $18,000 which enabled us to purchase
two handicap-accessible beach wheelchairs for the City Beach as well as supporting much smaller
requests such as donating diapers to low-income families through the United Way’s diaper drive, as well
as donating to the local food shelf and Christmas Bureau during this past holiday season.
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 Mayor’s Cup Festival will again be held at Plattsburgh’s City Beach, the crown jewel of the Lake City,
boasting one of the longest sandy beaches on freshwater in the U.S. The one-day celebration will kick-
off early with kayak rides and a 5K run/walk, and events are scheduled throughout the day for the whole
family to enjoy. Live music and local breweries and food vendors will be at the beach as well to add to
the day’s festivities.
The Plattsburgh Sunrise Rotary Club hosts the Mayor’s Cup Regatta & Festival as a way for our
community to come together and celebrate summer in the North Country and to enjoy the beauty of
the Champlain Valley and the majestic Lake Champlain.  Sponsorship donations not only help to support
the events throughout the day on July 8th , but, more importantly, donations help Sunrise Rotary support
community-based projects such as the ones mentioned above. To learn more about the Plattsburgh
Sunrise Rotary Club, the community projects it has helped to develop and the organizations the club
supports locally and around the world, please visit  www.plattsburghsunriserotary.org.
Attached is a list of Mayor’s Cup Regatta & Festival sponsorship opportunities for 2023. We hope that
you will consider supporting Sunrise Rotary’s efforts to enhance the quality of life for everyone in our
community. For inquiries, please contact Sue LeBlanc Durocher at 518-593-0728.
