Week 2 Newsletter

Dear Pleon Sailors and Parents,

We're just finishing up our second week of program, time flies! We had a pretty humid week with a couple days of no wind, which caused for some interesting alternate lessons i.e. a pentathlon, capsizing test, etc.

We started off the week with Rockstar Day where we had some interesting costumes.For photos from Terrific Tuesday and this week check out the url provided,

I apologize for the late posting of the Wednesday Series results! Our Race Committee was held up because of the protests filed. Pictures from our first official Wednesday Series are available by clicking here, For results go to

Because of ongoing regattas our Opti fleet has been looking a little small. However, we had a great turn out for Manchester's Opti Green Fleet regatta(20+ ). We hadn't anticipated such a heavy turnout and had to send a second coach at the last minute. Today some of our Opti sailors will be making their way up to Sandy Bay Yacht Club in Rockport for the Linda Wieditz Regatta.

Our Laser and 420 teams are headed to the New Bedford Junior Regatta this weekend. Good luck to all!!

Lastly, if your child wants a Pleon pinnie for regattas  have them talk see me. The cost is $25.
