Dear Pleon Parents and Sailors,
It has been another wonderful week at Pleon! The weather has
been up and down but there have been no shortages of good times sailing in
Marblehead harbor! Some of the
highlights from this week include:
Fleet Regatta was on Tuesday at Manchester Sailing Association in
Manchester, MA. Pleon sent a whopping 14 Opti 1 sailors and had quite a
showing!! Pleon swiped 2nd through 5th place, all of them
winning trophies. 2nd place went to Reed Cole, 3rd went
to Abi Borggaard, 4th went to Eliza Jevon and 5th went to
Magdelaina Putnam! Congrats to all the Pleon sailors who participated.
80s Day! We tried
out a new Terrific Tuesday theme this week. Sorry if there was confusion between
the email and the calendar. We are working on updating the calendar so that
there is less confusion! We think 80s day was a success - plenty of neon, leg
warmers, side ponies and cut off sweat shirts! Spectacular showing out of the
girls in the Beginner class! Pictures can be seen on the facebook page here.
Wednesday Series July
10: Opti 1, 2 and Race, Laser 1 and
Race, and 420 2 and Race hit the water on Wednesday ready to compete. There was a beautiful 10-15 kt easterly
Breeze which made for an amazing day of racing. CLICK for 420 Results. Click
for Laser Results. Click for Opti Green results. Stay tuned for Opti 2/Race results -
they seem to have skipped off to the Hingham Junior Regatta with the Opti 2
coach. We will update the website with those results on Monday!
Regatta: Thursday and Friday of this week Pleon sent 4 Laser sailors, 4 420
sailors, and 13 Opti sailors to the Hingham Junior Regatta in Hingham, MA. A fantastic showing by Team Pleon! Click for

Regatta: Wednesday July 17th is the Linda Wieditz regatta at

Friday July 12 but was rescheduled). Opti 1 and 2 sailors should definitely
consider doing this event. It is loads of fun and free for everyone! Information on this event can be found HERE. We will
postpone Wednesday Series racing to Thursday afternoon for Optis so that kids
that sail the regatta don't miss out.

have their racing on Thursday because of the Linda Wieditz regatta. Grill will
be fired up at 4 for Pleon members to enjoy hotdogs and hamburgers!

5PM at Pleon. After racing on Wednesday, we will hold our annual single handed
match race in 420s. The racing is bracket knock out style, 1 boat verses
another boat until there is a victor! Come down and show us your single handed
420 sailing skills!
End of Session 1: Friday
July 19th is the last day of first session L Summer is passing too
Keep in mind that Marblehead Junior Race Week is July 22-24
and Marblehead NOOD starts on July 25th so THERE WILL BE NO CLASSES DURING THAT WEEK. If your sailor is
not sailing during race week but wants to be around we can always use help with
dollies and race committee. Have your sailors talk to Commodore Aidan if they
want to be involved. If parents would like to volunteer to help out with MJRW
please email firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a lot
As always please email Aidan or I if you have questions or
concerns! Have a wonderful weekend!
