Re: [seakayaking-35] Anyone interested in kayak camping?

From: Randy E
Sent on: Wednesday, June 6, 2007 7:08 PM
Just to remind people that unless there is a guide along and people
are in stable, double sea kayaks, an open water crossing is no place
for a beginner. Unless someone on the trip has guide experience, I'd
suggest making this trip for intermediate/advance­d kayakers (unless
someone wants to organize a 'tour', which is mucho expensive). There
are lots of safer paddles to do than this for novices. I'm hoping that
we can have trips such as those as well. I'm just thinking about
peoples safety and well-being.
If a trip is planned for a weekend besides the 16 and 17th, I could make it.
