An Evolving Plan: Paddling New Zealand's Great Barrier Island with Bonnie Perry, presented by Riversi

In February 2017, Chicago-area paddler Bonnie Perry teamed up with Baja paddler Ginni Callahan and a group of hearty paddlers who do not quite circumnavigate this amazing island off the coast of Aukland, New Zealand. On the eastern coast are long, clear beaches, windswept sand-dunes and heavy surf. The western coast is home to hundreds of tiny, secluded bays. Come hear of the group's trip (average age on the trip was 66) and how it evolved to meet the needs and abilities of the participants and begin to dream about how you might someday paddle in another hemisphere.
