Yacht crew raise money for charity at IYC Run to the Beat Funrun


Yacht crew turned blue for a St. Maarten charity during the IYC Run to the Beat Funrun on Feb. 6.

The crew of M/Y Sairam became animated Avatars with blue body paint, the crew of M/Y 4You donned striped shirts and big black glasses for their Where’s Waldo theme and the crew of M/Y Sea Owl ran like birds of prey in bright blue capes.

More than 200 crew members attended the charity fun run, barbeque, pool party and a blue-themed costume party to raise more than $3,500 for the Children of the I Can Foundation in St. Maarten.

Prizes were awarded to the crew of M/Y C2 who completed 406 km together as a crew, beating their previous record of 292 km; Captain Will Kaye, who was named as Captain Running the Most Kilometers; Ignacio Rivas, of MY Baton Rouge, who was named Best Guy with 37km and Ashling Kavanagh, of MY C2, was named Best Girl with 32km.
