My first campout of the kayak trip in 1970. Third weekend of kayaking. September 1970
River running in 1970 when life jackets and helmets were optional.
My first kayak was the one in the middle. A Club 66 vintage.Note that bringing your head up first did not work back then either.
All kayaks were built to the 4 meter slalom racing standard and then the hulls started getting shorter for fast turning and the pointed ends only served to meet the racing standard.
