Ben Stookesberry at the Kendal Mountain Festival Nov 18th

This completely escaped my notice (well I have been out in the Himalayas)

Kendal Mountain Film Festival
Saturday 18th Nov 21.00 - 22.30
Brewery Arts Centre Theatre
“Into Twin Galaxies” –

A spectacular film of an insane ski and kayak mission across Greenland
- presented in persons by filmmaker Jochen Schmoll and adventurer Ben Stookesberry!
Meet the filmmaker and one of the star adventurers of this amazing film (a winner at the Banff Film Festival), I promise that you will be impressed!

In 2016 three National Geographic “Adventurers of the Year“ - Ben Stookesberry, Sarah McNair-Landry and Erik Boomer embarked on an unreal ski and kayak mission across Greenland. Using kite skis, they tow their whitewater kayaks over 1000km of the Greenland Ice Cap to reach the most northern river ever paddled.
Racing the clock and snow melt, dealing with a broken back and frozen clothes - this adventure really pushes the limits.

This is a rare opportunity and I am looking forward to meeting up with Jochen and Ben. Ben is one of the best expedition paddlers in the world today and I think we can look forward to a sell out event - so best to buy tickets asap.
