2016 Fall Program at Pleon Yacht Club
The 2016 Fall Season is here and we have a deep bench of coaches to get you back on the water for race development in preparation for local and travel fall and winter regattas. Our Fall Program Coordinator, Jared Rodriguez, will lead our coaching staff including Kyle Assad, Tomas Hornos, Parker Dwyer, Will Bailey and Kate Wysocki.
Pleon alumnus and 2016 Rio Olympian Thomas Barrows is also available to run clinics on October 8 & 9. The program is designed to improve and develop your racing skills and is not meant for those new to sailing. Clinics will be held on weekend days where new theory will be discussed, then put in practice on the water and lastly tested in a light racing format.
The curriculum covers boat handling techniques, sail trim, speed, tactics, and strategy. Sailors will get lots of attention and coaching feedback with a limitation on class size by coach of 7 boats to 1 coach. Practices are offered for all levels of racing sailors. Clinic days are more structured and rigorous than the summer program experience. Having fun will still be a key element of the racing program, but emphasis is placed on the sharing of learning new skills and racing techniques with the goal of challenging each other to improve and develop racing acumen.
