Kayaking the Aleutians – March 3

 Hear award winning filmmaker  and expedition sea kayaker Justine Curgenven (of "This is the Sea" ) talk about the highlights and challenges of her world first kayaking journey. She traveled along the Aleutian islands and Alaskan peninsula, described as "the greatest technical sea kayak expedition in the world".

Explorers Justine Curgenven and Sarah Outen set out to paddle 2,500km along the archipelago to the nearest road confronting more than 20 long crossings which separate the tiny unpopulated islands. Sarah faces an even more formidable challenge as this is part of her round-the-world human powered journey and she has limited kayaking experience.

Alone for 101 days in one of the windiest, roughest places on earth, these two women are swept away from land by unknown currents, pounded by rough seas and approached by bears. Experiencing an edge-of-your-seat journey, they gain a rare insight into themselves, the rich wildlife and the lives of the few people who live in this harsh yet beautiful landscape.

Justine will show video clips from the highly-anticipated film and tell behind the scenes stories.

The event will include:

  • 6:30pm: Pizza Party Social donated by the Kayak Academy
  • 7pm: Film Presentation
  •  Post Show: Gear Raffle

Tickets are $10 at the door. Learn more about the event on our event listing or view the film trailer here
