Presentation/Talk: A Greenland Journey - Fran Symes’ Expedition with Maligiak

Join Fran for an informal evening of socializing, slides of enchanting scenery, and tales of kayaking the Fjords of Greenland!

In June, Fran and four others joined Maligiak and Michael Gray for a 7 day paddle covering 100 miles along the rocky coasts and over the icy waters near Sisimiut.

(pictured above, Maligiak and his sister)

A member of the SKC meet-up group and kayak community, Fran was introduced to kayaking and the Greenland paddle almost 6 years ago by Alison Sigethy, a legendary American Greenland champion. For the last two years she has spent her time in Beaufort often answering the question, “what is that thing you are paddling with?”

Don't miss this one-time showing!  Space is limited, please call the shop and reserve your place at[masked]-7969. Bring a dish for your dinner or to share, sit back and enjoy!

    It was interesting to see another country, and the conditions they kayak in. I gotta admire Fran - I couldn't do what she did - for a lot of reasons!

    An interesting and engaging presentation by an extraordinarily resilient and adventuresome lady. Fran's trip was an admirable undertaking by an admirable individual. Thanks Fran for sharing it with us.

    Coming into town Friday night but likely will not make it to James Island before it is over. If we get there earlier than expected we will drop by. Sounds like an awesome program!
