Shell Point Beach, Florida --
Hundreds of sailors packed Shell Point Beach for the 38th annual Stephen Smith Memorial Regatta.
Stephan Smith was a local sailor who died of cancer. Now every year people from around the country come to Shell Point to sail in his honor and raise money for cancer research. The event raises $15,000 on average each year for the American Cancer Society, and sailing enthusiasts get to sail for a good cause.
Bill Olson said, "It's a terrible thing to have happen and we just want to do our best to support research and hopefully one day cure the disease."
Over the past 38 years, the regatta has raised more than $400,000 dollars. The money goes directly to the local Big Bend chapter.
