The Plattsburgh Sunrise Rotary took over management of the event with the blessing of the Mayor’s Office in 1991 from the Valcour Sailing Club which is based in the Plattsburgh Boat Basin on Lake Champlain and for a perspective on the racing in the lake we found a few sailors who are actively involved, not only in Mayor’s Cup, but also right through the summer..
