Kayaking the Aleutians with Justine Curgenven

Justine Curgenven kayaked the Aleutian Islands in the summer of 2014 with Sarah Outen. Justine is a film maker and she captured this audacious journey to share with others. Come to the Seattle release of the DVD!

Kayaking 2,500km along the Aleutian islands
No-one has succeeded in kayaking the length of the remote and stormy Aleutian Islands which stretch from Russia to Alaska. 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.

 Come and hear award winning filmmaker ("This is the Sea") and expedition sea kayaker Justine Curgenven talk about the highlights and challenges of her world first kayaking journey along the Aleutian islands and Alaskan peninsula, described as "the greatest technical sea kayak expedition in the world". Justine will show video clips from the highly-anticipated film and tell behind the scenes stories.
