St. Joseph's Candler throws first annual "Yacht Hop"

SAVANNAH (WTOC) - St. Joseph's Candler presented the first annual "Yacht Hop" as part of the 2010 Leukemia Cup Regatta.

Visitors hopped from one ship to another at the Savannah yacht club, while enjoying hors d' ouvres prepared by some of Savannah's finest chefs.

Organizers said it's not just about yachting, but also bringing the community together to fight blood cancer.

The yacht hop is in memory of sailor John McIntosh, Sr., who founded the Savannah Leukemia Regatta.

He also suffered from leukemia and was a top fundraiser each year.
