Pleon Yacht Club Junior Sailing Information Session Wed. Jan. 11th

Online Registration Opens February 27

Marblehead, Mass. (January 3, 2012) -- The Pleon Yacht Club will host an information session for families interested in its summer sailing programs on Wednesday, January 11, 7:00PM at the Gerry 5, 210 Beacon Street, Marblehead.  

Pleon's summer programs are open to all children who have completed third grade or higher.  The club also offers a two-week Intro-To-Pleon session for eight year olds at the end of the summer as a low-key way to introduce potential new Pleon members to the club and its offerings.  No previous sailing experience or affiliation with other clubs is required.  There will be a variety of four- and eight-week programs, including learn-to-sail, racing, and adventure sailing options.  

During the information session on January 11, Pleon Program director Erin Pierce and Pleon Commodore Kyle Heffrin will give a short presentation on the programs followed by a question-and-answer session. Program Committee members, other club officers, current sailors and junior instructors will also be on hand to answer questions.

The purpose of Pleon Yacht Club of Marblehead, one of the oldest junior yacht clubs in the country, is to involve as many young people as possible in the sport of sailing in a fun, educational atmosphere.

Online registration for Pleon summer programs opens February 27 at and there will be a discount for registering by March 9.  Pleon's Summer 2012 brochure will be available on the Pleon web site in early February. Anyone interested in Pleon programs is encouraged to sign up for email notifications at  A limited amount of financial aid will be available.
