St. Hazards Flag Flown in St. Barths
Back in 1997 the inspiration for St. Hazards came from a visit to St. Barths in the Caribbean.
St. Barths is near St. Martin and about 2,000 miles south east of Middle Bass.
A small bar there called LeSelect was the specific model that the atmosphere of Hazards has followed.
Ed, the guy who built St. Hazards, has returned to St. Barths about 20 times since then to visit his special friend Marius Stakelborough and many others who are drawn to this special place. Marius is now 85 years old and will celebrate his 60th anniversary of starting LeSelect this Novemebr. He's in the picture with Ed and his son Gary, who now runs the place.
We are very proud to have our St. Hazards flag fly in one of the oldest and most authentic (and friendly) places in all of the Caribbean.
And best of all, Marius came to visit St. Hazards back in 2006. He gave us his seal of approval.
WHen you visit Hazards, you will see lots of photos and other items from St. Barths and LeSelect. Including pictures of Marius' friend, Jimmy Buffett. Jimmy is expected to be at the LeSelect 60th anniversary party in Novemeber.
