Marblehead Junior Race Week

First established in 1889, Race Week takes place the last full week of July. The Juniors race Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, with hundreds of sailors ages 8 to 18 competing in Optimists, C420s and Lasers. Pleon YC, the oldest junior yacht club in the world, hosts this historic event each summer with race management help from The Boston, Corinthian, Eastern and Manchester Yacht Clubs. This year, MJRW is a qualifier for the 2019 Chubb U.S. Junior Championships Smythe Trophy (singlehanded division), which will be sailed in Lasers.
