    regret + gerund for present

    Is it acceptable to paraphrase the following sentence:
    "I can't take this job, which is a pity" by means of the verb "to regret" in one of the following ways:
    1 - I regret not being able to accept this job
    2 - I regret not to be able to accept this job ?
    Which one is correct?
