Participants in Sunday’s Chaotic Kayak race fundraiser show their spirit from the beach at Cruz Bay.

An organization that’s worked hard on St. John’s post-Irma recovery bested 16 other teams to come out on top at Sunday’s Chaotic Kayak race, an annual event that raises funds for veterans to experience a Team River Runner retreat on the island each year.

“BBC was our winner,” event organizer Kate Farrington said of the electric contractor that’s helped rebuild much of the island’s power grid. “It was super wonderful to have them participate in such a big community-oriented event. They’ve done so much here, so to have them at the top of the list is pretty cool to see it turn out the way it did.”
