Island Hopping in the Aleutians – 2500km by Kayak!


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 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.

The presentation will be held in a beautiful venue in La Jolla, (generously provided by that gives us the opportunity to socialize, eat, drink, and relax!
