Week 7 Update
August 4, 2017

Yo Pleon!

 

With MJRW last week, it has been awhile since my last update, and we have a lot to catch up on!

We kicked off session 2 with a great week. Intro to Pleon is here:) We were super excited to welcome another group of Intro kids this week, and we have been having a lot of fun! Check out some of their excitement here!

 This week's Terrific Tuesday theme was... Superhero Day! See the runway action here:)

Marblehead Junior Race Week

Marblehead Junior Race Week was a huge success thanks to all the volunteers and sailors who participated!

A special thank you has to go out to the amazing Green Team, who work incredibly hard to make sure launching went smoothly, and were a lot of fun.

All of our Pleon sailors did incredibly well, despite challenging conditions and large fleets. The results can't capture all of the hard work and good sailing that went into the races, but it is still pretty cool how well Pleon finished!

  • Frankie Doyle won laser radial

  • Phil Jeffries and Megan Yorz placed 2nd in 420 champ

  • Pearse Dowd won Opti Champ

Regattas

It has been a busy week for our race teams! The 420 team traveled right from North Americans at the Buffalo Canoe Club on Lake Erie, to the CJ Buckley Team Race Regatta, and have now moved on to Buzzards Bay.

The CJ Buckley is a team race regatta at the East Greenwich Yacht Club in Rhode Island. The regatta is held in memory of CJ Buckley, a young sailor who passed away from brain cancer in 2002. This year 24 teams were broken into Gold, Silver, Bronze and Iron fleets, and enjoyed two days of competitive team racing. The Pleon team finished 5th in Silver fleet.

Good luck to the sailors currently competing! Have a great weekend Pleon, see you on Monday!
