Rowboats and cocktails with Julie Angus '97

Rowboats and cocktails with Julie Angus '97

The University Club of San Francisco - 800 Powell Street, San Francisco, CA  94108

Join us for an evening of networking with fellow McMaster alumni featuring a talk by Mac grad and world adventurer Julie Angus ’97.

MORE

Julie is an inspiring speaker who wears many hats: adventurer, scientist, bestselling author, documentary film producer, and entrepreneurial boat designer. She was the first woman to row across the Atlantic Ocean from mainland to mainland. She has also cycled across continents, rowed thousands of kilometers of coastlines and rivers, and sailed ancient Phoenician trading routes to research the olive tree. And their adventures continue, with a planned autonomous Atlantic crossing.  

It's easy to see why Explore Magazine listed Julie as one of North America’s leading adventurers and she's regularly seen in the media. 

Before becoming an adventurer, Julie studied and developed treatments for heart disease, cancer and genetic ailments. She has two undergraduate degrees with honours from McMaster University (Biology and Psychology).
