Pleon Yacht Club was founded in 1887 by a group of boys with boats too small and finances to meager to join the senior clubs in the area.
Due to the success of last year's program, this spring Pleon is opening its doors once again to area High School Sailors who are looking for a way to get extra practice, receive great coaching from experienced college racers, race, and meet other High School Sailors.
Coaching will be provided by former Boston College sailors Spencer Powers and Parker Dwyer. Spencer has nine years coaching experience at Boston College, Quissett Yacht Club, and Falmouth Yacht Club. Parker has recently re-located from Florida where he coached at Coral Reef Yacht Club in season, and Shelter Island Yacht club in the summers.
