SIMPSON BAY:— The foundation Environmental Protection in the Caribbean (EPIC) St. Maarten hosted a successful EPIC Sunset Kayak Fundraiser. Having taken place on the last Thursday of 2017, participants enjoyed the sunset while saying goodbye to the old year. Approximately 40 people participated and took the opportunity to paddle between recently salvaged boats and enjoy a refreshing drink while admiring one of the Simpson Bay Lagoon’s remaining mangrove tree stands. After enjoying the sunset, the Buccaneer Beach Bar provided an after-party with a fireball to warm up and a burger deal to satisfy the appetite. The funds raised support EPIC’s ongoing restoration and conservation efforts on the island.
None of this would have been possible without our sponsors, therefore we would like to reach out and thank Tri-Sport for always supporting our events, a big thank you to CC1 St. Maarten and Prime Cash & Carry for the large donation of drinks to refresh our participants. Also, a big thank you to St Maarten Sails & Canvas NV for the support boat and safety supervision. Last but not least thank you to Buccaneer Beach Bar for the organization of the after-party!
