Kayaking the Aleutians
This film is about Justine Curgenven and Sarah Outen and their quest to be the first to paddle the chain of islands in Alaska. The journey takes them 101 days in some of the most unpredictable waters in the world, with strong currents, big swell and the occasional encounter with a bear, while having a shower in a river… If this film won’t get you to go on a kayak journey, nothing will. They encounter lots of wildlife along the way and see some magnificent islands and scenery.
Gold of Bengal
Corentin de Chatelperron aims to prove that boats don’t have to be made out of plastic and fibre glass, but instead they can be made from natural products such as jute, a strong natural fibre. To do so he makes a small sailing boat, with a greenhouse, some chickens and lots of low-tech solutions to try and be completely self sufficient in a 6 month journey around the islands in the golf of Bengal. With a few mishaps and damage along the way, he and the boat make it, although the chickens have to be replaced. Corentin try to prove that everything does not have to be done in a complicated way, but instead can be done with some ingenuity and some bits that others would class as rubbish.
Other films featured are The Right, The Accord, India’s First Surfer Girl, (all surfing films), One Voice, (success story of the Humpback Whales’) and Ocean Stories: The Halls, (IMAX underwater videographers).

What have I been up to:
Work has kicked back into full swing so quite busy, doing lots of watersports and working with kids and adult groups. I have had a few days off, been out climbing as much as possible, did a bit of drone filming, (keep eyes on instagram) and route set for a wall near Southampton. Ive also managed to fit in the last of my holiday to go to font for a few days next month which I’m psyched about and hopefully a cornwall trip next week!
