Pleon Yacht Club is the oldest junior yacht club in the world. Its members and flag officers are all under the age of 21, creating a unique environment that fosters independence, self-confidence, teamwork, and many, many life-long friendships.
Even though parents stop at the gate when Pleon programs are in session, they play a vital role supporting the sailors and the club in many ways. Parents serve on the board and program committee, pitch in as regatta parents when Pleon sailors travel to compete, help run Marblehead Junior Race Week and other events, and open their homes to Pleon coaches during the summer, and out-of-town competitors during Pleon-hosted regattas.
