MJRW Important Information
July 17, 2013

Dear Pleon Parents and Sailors,

Marblehead Junior Race Week is next week and there are a few IMPORTANT things everyone needs to know:

Registration and check in: If you are planning on sailing race week and have not yet registered please do so ASAP. Registration is open until Sunday July 21st at 7PM. Check in begins on Sunday between 4 and 7 PM or Monday morning before racing in the tent on the grass by the EYC paddle courts. If you have QUESTIONSabout registration send the registration team an email at ***If your sailor is in Intermediate or Beginner please check in with me and the coaches before registering your sailors for race week***

Using a Pleon boat: If your sailor plans on using a Pleon owned boat for race week, I need to know ASAP. There is a check-in/out form that you (parents) need to fill out and a fee of $50 to use the event for the regatta. Your sailors are solely responsible for the boat during race week - if there is damage or lost equipment, you will be responsible for taking care of it. Sailors who show up expecting a boat without reserving one will not get one!!

Green Team: Aidan is organizing a group of kids to be on the Green Team! If you have a sailor who is not sailing race week but still wants to be a part of it, the Green Team is a perfect option. These sailors will help out with dollies at launching and hauling times and help out under the tent with water coolers. Green team will be meeting on Sunday at Pleon from 12-1:30 PM to tie dye shirts! Have your sailor visit Aidan in the office to sign up for Green Team and then we will see you on Sunday to tie dye shirts *BYO shirt  

Bics: We only have 2 kids registered for O'pen Bics right now. We have 4 more Bics available to sail if anyone is interested! They race on the Opti Green line and it is a lot of fun! If we only have 2 kids registered they will not have a start for the Bics, which is a shame.

Social Media: Pleon has a social media and marketing intern this summer who has been getting all our social media outlets ready for MJRW! Eliza Garry, Laser race team member and long time Pleon sailor, has created a MJRW facebook page which you can see HERE, a twitter feed @JrRaceWk01945 and Instagram feed @mjrw13. Eliza will be posting pictures, live updates and videos throughout the week! SO EXCITING!!

VOLUNTEERS! We still need volunteers for FOOD and ON LAND SAFETY. It's fun and it helps us out SO much. Please email Tinabeth Burton at if you want to help with food. Email Tam Reisbach at if you want to help out with on land safety.

Please feel free to email me or Aidan if you have questions or concerns! Remember there are no regular Pleon classes next week because of MJRW and Marblehead NOOD.
