Plattsburgh to host windsurfing festival

Posted: Updated:

A brand new festival is landing in Plattsburgh this September.

The Lake Champlain Windsurfing Festival is a free event that will offer clinics, demos and excitement highlighting windsurfing. This is the first time the event has landed in the North Country, but organizers say the sport has grown in the area and they hope the festival attracts many visitors.

"Windsurfing and kiteboarding have boomed in the last few years here. If you go out to Cumberland Bay or over to the City Beach on a windy day, you will find a load of people with kites up in the air. So, it's become very popular," said Kristy Kennedy of the North Country Chamber of Commerce.

The festival takes place Sept. 28-29. The American Windsurfing Tour is hosting the event. They are based in Maui, Hawaii.
