Dear Pleon Parents and Sailors,
This is a reminder of our Free Sail policy. It has come
to my attention that there have been some issues at Free Sail and it is CRUCIAL
that you and your sailors understand the Free Sail guidelines. It is a great
opportunity for Pleon sailors to come down and get more time on the water, but
if the rules are not followed it may not be an opportunity anymore!
The Free Sail information can be found on the website by
OR you can just read the information below that I copy
and pasted off of the website:
We host Free Sail most Sundays from 9am to 12pm as
noted on the Pleon calendar. Here are some guidelines we would like you to read
prior to partaking in Free Sail
1.) Open to Pleon sailors and parents only, so please do
not bring friends unaffiliated with the club.
2.) Between 9 and noon, the club will be open and Junior
Instructors will be here to help with equipment, rigging and launching.
Free Sail starts at 9 and kids should be in and de-rigged
by noon. Please make sure that this time frame is not violated as we have
scheduled for 9-12 and could have other things happening after 12.
3.) The Junior Instructors are here to help rig,
launch and provide equipment, but are not meant to be out in chase
boats coaching or babysitting your kids.
4.) When kids go out sailing they stay either in the
harbor, or between Peaches Point, Children's Island and Marblehead Rock.
Again, know that the Junior Instructors will not be out in motor boats, so
please understand that letting your kids sail outside the harbor means they are
5.) Junior Instructors will help rig and de-rig, but boats
left without being de-rigged and/or hauled out of the water is unacceptable.
I will also print and post this on the door to the clubhouse.There are only a few Free Sails left this summer, let's try to
make it right!
