The Mayor's Cup Regatta is set to sail on Saturday, July 10, 2021!

Registration is free and online registration is mandatory.


Known as “the” sailing tradition of Lake Champlain, the Mayor’s Cup Regatta is the signature event of the popular summer festival in Plattsburgh, NY. Racers face a “no guts, no glory” competition known, since 1978, for its spirited fun and, sometimes, high-seas adventure. When skippers, who compete around the world, claim Lake Champlain as “sailing at its best,” we know our waterfront treasure is no fools gold! 
The Mayor’s Cup Regatta includes competitive races in three divisions - Cruising, Racing, and Multihull with prizes for all classes. Unfortunately, because of lingering COVID-related social restrictions in place at the time of the planning for the Regatta, there will not be a post-Regatta BBQ nor a live awards ceremony.
Please note that this year sailors must register online and in advance of the race in order to compete in the Regatta (boats with a current LCPHRF Rating may register the day of the race). Registration is free. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER. 
More details on the 44th Annual Mayor's Cup Regatta, including Sailing Instructions and Notice of Race, will be available on this site in the coming weeks. Specific inquires regarding the Mayor's Cup Regatta can be directed to Kjell Dahlen at
