Pleon is the oldest junior yacht club in the United States, promoting junior sailing since 1887. We are hosting an open house on May 6, 2018 and hope you will come learn about Pleon and our programs.
Pleon's mission is to involve as many young people as possible in the sport of sailing through a fun, educational atmosphere and to keep them involved and growing on a personal level for many years.
Since the Club's beginning in 1887, Pleon's flag officers and members have been youngsters under the age of 21. The program supports both serious competitors and recreational sailors of all skill levels, and is focused on building sailing skills while also promoting sportsmanship, fostering teamwork and strengthening respect for oneself and others.
Pleon's clubhouse, located on Marblehead Neck, is the center for daily activity and provides a multipurpose venue for instruction, social activities and regatta management. The facility extends to the Marblehead Harbor waterfront and provides dinghy drysail space, boat launching, and additional Optimist rack storage on floats.
Pleon owns fleets of club boats that are available for members to use including Optimists, Lasers (full rig, radial, and 4.7), and Club 420s. Coaches have inflatable ribs for on-the-water support at Pleon and away regattas.
We'd love for you to consider spending the summer with us! Come check out the club and learn what we're all about on Sunday May 6th from 11-2pm at our Open House! Spread the word!
