Hello Pleon Parents and Sailors-
We have been getting a number of questions regarding our Fall Program that I wanted to touch on. The curriculum is racing focussed and we offer 3 different levels:
- Opti Green- New this year! Recommended for young opti sailors with 2 years plus of sailing experience that have raced regattas in the green fleet this past summer.
- Opti Champ- For sailors with Championship Line(Red White or Blue Fleets) experience. Our Fall program has a mix of sailors that are qualified for Team Trials and some that are not. Sailors typically have their own boat.
- 420- For sailors that have racing experience. The program focusses on Club Style sailing(Trapeze and Spinnaker) but will also incorporate some team racing and collegiate style aspects. Sailors can sail a Pleon boat or their own boat.
All of our programs have flexible scheduling options and sailors bringing a private boat are able to store their equipment at Pleon for the duration of our program. If you are in need of a club OPTI please contact us for arrangements. 420 and Opti Champ sailors will have an opportunity to race in the Halloween Howl down in Newport later on in the Fall and Opti Green will have a race day towards the end of our season. We have also been putting together a great group of coaches and assistant coaches for the Fall that have extensive racing experience on many different levels. Registration and program offerings for the Fall can be found here:
If you have other Fall specific questions do not hesitate to touch base and we hope to see you on the water soon!
