Dear Pleon Parents and Sailors,
It seems hard to believe that we are already getting ready
for Summer 2013! The Summer 2013 Brochure and class listings are up on the
website under the "Sailing" tab. I encourage you to look at the "Classes"
section as well as the "Registration" section.

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
Sonar sailing options.
open Monday February 25th at 9:00AM. There is an early bird

from summer '12 will be sent to you via email by Saturday. Please take note
of the coach recommendation before you sign up for Pleon's 2013 program and
again email me if you have any questions.
Please take a moment
to read the following blurb about summer housing below
Pleon Families and Friends:
The off-season has had us preparing for yet another great summer at
Pleon. We are in the midst of hiring an exceptional staff of coaches not
only locally, but also from New Zealand and other parts of the
U.S. An integral part of that process is matching coaches with
volunteer host families for the duration of the summer. If you are
interested in housing a coach, or have any questions about what's involved,
we'd love to hear from you.
The requirements are simple. You agree to provide a bedroom, access to a
bathroom, breakfast and other occasional meals. It's helpful to have an
extra bike on hand for your coach to get to and from Pleon and around
town. Pleon provides you with a stipend for your participation.
Having hosted a coach last summer I can tell you firsthand that it was great
experience for our kids and family, and helped to make what is already a unique
program even more special. Many families forge strong bonds and develop
lifelong relationships with the coaches that have stayed with them.
Again, if you are interested in being a host family or have any questions at
all, please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you.
