Expedition Kayaking Night with Russell Henry

Date: 
Thursday, March 30, 2017 - 6:30pm to 9:00pm

Join us for an evening of expedition kayaking at Ocean River Sports with guest speaker Russell Henry and enjoy tales of Russell’s past trips. As well, hear about his upcoming trip and the planning involved in these long distance kayaking trips.

Russell has been on many expedition kayaking trips that have taken him to exotic and far off places and tested his skills with every stroke. Russell paddled with his brother, Graham, from Belem, Brazil to Juno Beach, Florida in 2013. This adventure was close to 7,000km of paddling through 23 different countries making it one of the longest paddling expeditions in history. In 2014, Russell set a record that remains unbroken to this day, paddling around Vancouver Island in just over 12 days. In 2015, Russell paddled an outrigger canoe with a team of other young paddling enthusiasts in the Race to Alaska, a 750-mile route from Port Townsend, Washington to Ketchikan, Alaska.

Now, in 2017 Russell will set out with two friends, David Moseley and Luke Spence, on a two-month sea kayaking accessed ski touring adventure from Prince Rupert, British Columbia to Skagway, Alaska.

Join us to hear tales of past adventures as well as what goes into making expedition trips possible and how to plan for long distance paddling.
