Randy Chatterjee, President of SKABC, and other SKABC memebrs will demonstrate the fine art of packing a sea kayak for a comfortable camping trip as far from the civilization as you can paddle. This 30-minute clinic will show the equipment you should have, what is nice to have and what will actually fit.
 
Topics covered are :
 
• What a Safe and Comfortable Campsite by the Water Looks like
• Sizing a Kayak for the Length of Trip you want to do
• Suggested Camping Gear, Food and Water
