Aleutian Islands Crossing

THE TEAM: Justine Curgenven and Sarah Outen

WHAT: Sea kayaking 1,355 miles along the Aleutian Islands from Adak Island to the Kenai Peninsula

HOW: Justine and Sarah spent 101 days (including 37 no-paddle “weather days”) paddling from Adak, the last island in the 1,355-mile Aleutian Islands chain, to the city of Homer on Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula. At one point, they traveled 250 miles without resupply, and found themselves more than 1,000 miles from the nearest Coast Guard station.
