Presentation description: Kayaking 2,500km along the Aleutian islands
Come and hear award winning filmmaker 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". With round-the-world adventurer Sarah Outen, she 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. 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.


Justine's Bio:
Justine is an adventure filmmaker and expedition sea kayaker who was named one of the UK's top 20 living explorers. Her documentaries have been shown on the BBC and National Geographic & won her multiple awards. She created the "This is the Sea" series of DVDs which inspired thousands of people to take to the water. She represented England in the world surf kayak championships and loves surfing her sea kayak in the tidal races near her home in Wales. Her expeditions include circumnavigating the south island of New Zealand, Tasmania and the Queen Charlotte islands. Last summer, she kayaked 2,500km along the Aleutian islands to the nearest road with round-the-world adventurer Sarah Outen.

Film reviews:
"In the summer of 2014, Justine Curgenven and Sarah Outen traversed the Aleutian Islands, completing what was, in my mind, perhaps the greatest, as yet undone, technical sea kayak expedition in the world. The film is spectacular, full of high adventure, a touching friendship, and some of the most magnificent scenery on earth". - Jon Turk

"Superb filming to go with a superb adventure! Justine and Sarah are kayaking alone through one of the most challenging and dangerous environments in the world. It is incredible that not only did they make it, but that they were able to create a high quality documentary without a film crew following along. Their film not only communicates the hardships and dangers of the expedition, but also conveys the rich backdrop of wildlife and culture in this region. A definite 5 out of 5 stars." - Colin Angus.

"The story of Sarah and Justine's 101 day ordeal is amazing, moving and, above all inspiring. My admiration is unbounded." - Ranulph Fiennes

"Sarah and Justine make an engaging and inspiring pair. For this, an epic journey in one of the world's most inhospitable places, the relative kayaking newcomer and the experienced paddling filmmaker show what is possible through the power of unfaltering friendship and unwavering determination. A must-watch for adventure-lovers." - Adventure Kayak magazine

That's awesome! I'm going to see her next Saturday at the Toronto Outdoor Adventure Show. I'm going to buy her "Kayaking the Aleutians" DVD. I have all of her "This is the Sea" series and "This is Canoeing" and "This is the Roll" with Cheri and Turner. Great stuff to watch through a cold crappy winter! :popcorn:

I'll have to check out the DVD. That's some insane paddling. Sorry I missed those guys when they came past Kodiak.
