On the Friday and Saturday of the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta (March 2 - March 5) there was a recycling competition at the Sint Maarten Yacht Club. The competition was organized by the Environmental Protection in the Caribbean (EPIC). In order to win the competition, one had to recycle three different kinds of “trash” while wearing flippers and goggles. The sailors were very competitive and it was great to see the green team, consisting of MPC students, working together with EPIC. John Blair won the competition, recycling all the trash in only 28.54 seconds, who will win a weekend trip to Saba!
