Justine Curvengen: Sea kayaking the World
Time & Location
About the Event
With 15 years of sea kayaking adventures spanning six continents, Justine's hair-raising experiences appeal to anyone with an adventurous spirit ... be they climbers, skiers, sailors, or kayakers themselves! She has been on dozens of remote, sometimes world-first sea kayaking trips including circumnavigating Tasmania, the South island of New Zealand, Ireland, Haida Gwaii and a solo trip around Vancouver island. She will share personal anecdotes and show video clips from her award winning films.
What happened when she saw a polar bear between Kuujjuaq to Salluit on her latest 1000km trip in the Canadian Arctic? How did she cope with extreme heat and rashes during a 6-week paddle in remote Indonesia? Did she push herself too far on a solo trip around Vancouver Island? What was it like paddling with other strong women like Freya Hoffmeister, Sandy Robson, and Sarah Outen? How does she prepare for long remote trips? What was it like when a whale came up under her kayak in Baja?
Justine has given presentations all over the world including at Adventure Travel Shows in London, Toronto and Ottawa. Her talks are always funny and entertaining. Come and hear some great stories, near misses, and lessons learned.
