Take your team racing skills to the next level!

Pleon Yacht Club will be hosting a Team Race Clinic in Marblehead, MA on Sunday, April 7. The clinic is focused on teaching the fundamentals of 3 v. 3 team racing in collegiate 420's. It is a no-nonsense, intensive and focused approach that will quickly advance your game.  We will cover executingcombinations, boat handling, strategy, and rules that are heavily used in team racing. Team Racing not only promotes disciplined sailing and tactics, but is a fun way for sailors to experience a different aspect of sailing.  The clinic is open to High School age sailors with experience sailing and racing 420s.
