Well did you know that some Buffalo High teens are sailing away in a relatively new initiative called the Buffalo High School Sailing Program?

It's been around for since 2009.

Channel 4 interviewed teens involved,

"My dad is a sailor, my grandpa is a sailor, so it was just passed on to me," said student sailor Mark Hofmeister.  "I picked it up and I love it."

What's cool about this program is that any High schooler can join a team.  Practices are twice a week at the lovely Buffalo Yacht Club with races on Friday-Sunday.

Channel 4 also talked with Kaite Braungart, Program Co-Director

"They can expect to learn not only skills on the water but sportsmanship...They get to work on team building with not only their team but other teams."
