Two women on a 2500 km kayaking Odyssey is a wonderful film presentation. No one has succeeded in kayaking the length of the remote stormy Aleutian Islands, which stretch, from Russia to Alaska. Explores Justine Curgenven and Sarah Outen set out to paddle 2500 km 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 power 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. You will experience an edge of your seat journey, as 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.
The award-winning filmmaker "This is the Sea" and expedition sea kayaker Justine Curgenven talk about the highlights and challenges of their first world kayaking journey along the Aleutian Islands and Alaskan peninsula and it is described as the greatest technical sea kayak expedition in the world. It could be really expensive but Sarah bought coupole of Groupon deals for kayaking. And along with Groupon coupons she saved 70% on her adventure.
These documentaries have been shown on the BBC and National Geographic and have won multiple awards. She has created a series of DVDs called “This is the Sea” and has inspired thousands of people to take to the water. She represented England in the world serve kayak championships and love serving her sea kayak in the title 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 2500 km along the Aleutian Islands to the nearest road with round the world adventure Sarah Outen.
Superb filming and superb adventure shows Justine and Sarah kayaking alone through one of the most challenging and dangerous environments in the world. It is not only incredible that they made it but 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.
Sarah and Justine make an engaging and inspiring pair. For this epic journey in one of the world's most inhospitable places, the relative kayaking newcomer and the experience paddling filmmaker show what is possible to do through the power of unfaltering friendship and unwavering determination.
