The Buffalo Yacht Club is hosting their first Leukemia Cup this weekend.  To kick off the regatta the 420 FunFest was held Friday night, with a special purpose in mind.  Maybe you remember our PatStrong post back in April.  Unfortunately, Patrick lost that battle in May, but the fight to end Leukemia and Lymphoma lives on through the support of many of his friends who sailed in his honor.

With very little wind, some exceptionally talented young sailors showed how to have fun in no wind with virtually no rules, other than one – have fun.  There was ample skulling, shoving off, boarding, swimming, and excessing roll tacking.  The winner is the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society as everyone who entered had to make a donation to Maddie Waldron’s donation page.

You can too here.
