Yacht crew run, raise money in Sint Maarten

IYC Crew hosted its 5th annual Run To The Beat Fun Run for superyacht crew in Sint Maarten on Feb. 5, raising $5,500 — its most yet — for the Sint Maarten-based children’s charity The I-CAN Foundation.

More than 120 crew from 12 yachts participated in the all-day event at Isle de Sol Marina. Fifteen children from the ICAN foster home also ran with crew. Crew donated $2 for every km completed.

Best overall runner was Chief Stew Emma Gyenge from M/Y Sea Owl, who clocked an impressive 41km. Best Overall crew were from M/Y Arion with a combined total of 152km run, followed by the crew of M/Y Polly in second place with 125km run in total.

“Every year, the feedback following the event is overwhelmingly positive,” said Jennifer Howarth, global crew placement director at IYC. “The crew love having been healthy running kms while giving back to the community and the children. The buzz on the docks makes organizing this annual event worthwhile.”

Co-second-place female winners, completing 25km each, are 2d Stew Alice Clements of M/Y The Wellesley and Chief Stew Anya Van Der Venter of M/Y Arion.

Co-first-place male winners, completing 38km each, are Chief Eng. Julian White of M/Y Baton Rouge and Chef Matius Grand of M/Y Arion. Runner-up male winner with 37km was Levi Crocker of M/Y Hayken.
