When you plan your luggage for a trip with the kayaks, you must pack light, and only necessary stuff. You do not need fancy clothing. Remember that space is limited on the boat and in the kayak, any extra pounds will make it harder for you to row and keep up with the team. For these reasons, there is a limit of 2 pieces of luggage per person (camera bag excluded).

Please consider also bringing small tents, just enough for one person, or, if shared, consider using it to its maximum occupancy.
