In May 2018 we, Mathilde Gordon and Lucy Graham, will kayak from Juneau, Alaska to Vancouver Island, Canada. For Lucy, having done various multi-day paddles before, kayaking the Inside Passage has been a life-long dream. For Mathilde, who has had little kayaking experience, this is an exciting leap out of her comfort zone. We want to experience new places, take on the elements, connect with nature, challenge ourselves and have fun!
However, in the bigger picture…
We plan to use the 3-month-long paddle to raise awareness of marine debris issues, fundraise for those fighting for ocean protection and conservation and inspire others.
We have both been living single-use plastic free since the beginning of 2016. We will take our plastic free challenge to the next level by also paddling the Inside Passage single-use plastic free.
We will connect people across international waters, inspiring others to be stewards of our oceans.
We will show other young women that adventure is for everyone.
Please join us on our journey!
