Kayaking the Aleutians
No-one had succeeded in kayaking the length of the remote and stormy Aleutian Islands which stretch from Russia to Alaska. Two women 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. Sarah faces an even more formidable challenge as this is part of her round-the-world human powered 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. The DVD contains a 55 minute cut and a 70 minute Director’s Cut, plus 4 bonus films.
