Week 3 done! USA Day on Tuesday was so much fun, as sailors marched to "Born in the USA." Monday's Sail With or Against Your Parents Night (SWOAYPN) was cancelled due to storms, but Tuesday's Movie Night was a crazy and good time! New: Wednesday Series results and recaps are now on the website!!! Check it out at http://www.pleon.org/page/3324.
Hingham is happening now, we have 5 Lasers, 2 420's, and tons of optis sailing. This Saturday and Sunday are the New Bedford Junior Regatta, which most Race Team sailors are headed to! Coach Sam and I are even going to sail a 420 and see if we can beat some Junior Instructors. Monday and Tuesday, Pleon is sending two teams to the Sears Cup Qualifier in Boston to sail Sonars. Hopefully a Pleon team takes the qualifying spot to compete in the Sears Junior National Triple-handed Championship!
Week 4 is coming up and is sooooo busy:
Sunday the 13th: Free Sail has been cancelled.
Monday the 14th: Coach Kaylie's birthday!! And all members can come down to the club and take out some boats for SWOAYPN 5:30-8pm.
Tuesday the 15th IS A BIG DAY. IT'S PARKER'S BIRTHDAY AND IT'S PIRATE DAY, ARRRRRR. Parker's birthday: Self explanatory. Let's make it awesome. Pirate Day: My favorite Terrific Tuesday! Morning classes, come dressed as a pirate and we'll walk the plank.
Wednesday the 16th: Linda Weiditz Memorial Regatta in Rockport. Wednesday Series racing in the afternoon at Pleon. Carlton Trophy (Note: moved from Tuesday): From 6-8:30pm any sailor at any age can compete in a single-handed 420 match-racing regatta, usually held off the Pleon dock.
Saturday the 19th: Green Team Tie-dye/Pizza lunch/organizational meeting at noon at Pleon. Green Team is for Pleon members NOT sailing in MJRW. The Green Team helps me around Pleon and helps regatta sailors with dollies, water stations, and food. Pleon members can sign up for the Green Team by finding me and being added to the list. I will send an email to the parents of Green Team members next week to confirm!
Week 5 is Marblehead Junior and Senior Race Weeks. No Pleon classes all week.
Thanks for making this summer so much fun so far,
P.S. Your kids don't know enough Dave Matthews Band!
