RIP Andy ‘Buzz’ Buchanan

News passes around the windsurfing community of another tragic death this month.   Andy ‘Buzz’ Buchanan lost his battle with cancer on Tuesday 29th January.  Andy Buchanan served as the PWA Press Officer from 2008 through till 2009 when he was first diagnosed with cancer at the age of 27.  Andy remained very much one of the team and paid frequent visits to the crew at events over the following years.

Andy brought  passion to windsurfing and his life as a whole which was obvious in his work. Never one to back away from a
challenge – never mind how ridiculous and never mind how small the chance of success – Andy brought entertainment to many through his writing and his own activities. –

Rest in Peach Andy Buchanan.
