Max Buzzell race captain of the Western Michigan University sailing team tragically passed away
due to a allergic reaction. He was a friend to many in the MCSA and a first rate sailor and a
friend. He always made sure to be honest and fair and watch out for his own.
He had a big heart and always worked to grow the team and help a new sailor in need or an old friend. He was
going to be a Junior this fall. He will be missed by all. He leaves a legacy impossible to measure
up to and had a larger then life personality.
Update: Max was back in Sodus Bay, NY to begin instructing sailing at Sodus Bay Junior Sailing Association on Monday. His family is asking that anyone who would like to do something in his memory consider donating to the not-for-
profit sailing school.
