Anne, myself, and the City of Plattsburgh are excited to have you join us for the ACC regatta. We are sailing out of the City Marina (a really nice facility) on the Plattsburgh City water front. If you have ever been to the Tupper Lake regatta, It will be a lot like that. We will work as a team to take off and put on hull covers and launch and haul boats. 
I have attached the files for the NOR and Registration. We are doing this old school. You will have to send us a check or pay when you get here. Sending it in is preferred. Please send me back the registration.
