MJRW Housing
July 8, 2013

Dear Pleon Families

Every year sailors from around the Northeast travel to Marblehead to take part in Junior Race Week.  Visiting sailors tell us that MJRW is one of the highlights of their summer, and having so many of them come helps to make the regatta the success that it is.  However, for many of them, they are only able to attend because of our ability to offer them housing with local families.

So far this year we have 35 sailors requesting housing, and that number is likely to climb to 50 or 60 by the time we hit the deadline.  Clubs requesting housing so far include:  Agamenticus YC in York, ME; East Bay Sailing in Bristol, RI; Cohasset Yacht Club; and Shelter Island Yacht Club. 

Host families need to provide a bed, mattress, cot or couch on the nights of July 21 (optional), 22 and 23.  Most kids will need a ride to and from Pleon each day, although some may have cars.  Meals are provided by MJRW.  Everyone is asked to sign a code of conduct regarding expected behavior.  Coaches and parents are not accommodated.

If you are able to house one, two or more sailors, please contact Katie Bloxham  Many thanks for your help!
