Known as “the” sailing tradition of Lake Champlain, the Mayor’s Cup Regatta returns July 13th as the signature event of the popular 4-day summer festival in Plattsburgh, NY. Attracting sailboats from throughout the northeast and Quebec, 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!

Diamond Island Regatta Away Regatta8/13/2022 - 8/13/2022 TBD - SatDavid Klebanoff
Hosted by the Diamond Island Yacht Club Charlotte VT. Part of the Lake wide Cannon Series Here’s What You Need to Know: The DIR page on the DIYC website is open! You can register for the race, order your customized t-shirts with your boat name, and get your space reserved for the always sold out dinner. ACT NOW! Why now? 1. Early registration helps us organize. 2. Because of the customized boat names on the t-shirts your order must be placed by Sunday night, July 28. Do it now while you’re thinking about it. 3. The dinner always sells out. You don’t want to miss it! This year it’s a professionally catered “Taste of the Caribbean” with mahi mahi, beautifully seasoned island pork and more. Plus, we’ll be playing your favorite Island/boating music, there’ll be a cool presentation by the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum, race awards, a limbo competition (what were we thinking?) and more! To make it easy here is a link for the DIR page. From there you’ll find information and links for t-shirts, dinner tickets and race registration: http://diyc.org/diamond-island-regatta/ Questions?
