Gear List

If you are planning to attend please consider the following:-

  • you will definitely need a full wetsuit or drysuit plus multiple changes of thermals to get through the course.
  • hike tent you will be comfortable in
  • all your gear needs to be able to be stored in the craft you are paddling - there is an overnight trip as part of the course
  • BYO drybags, lots of small bags are better than a few big ones
  • double bag your sleeping bag
  • treat this as a lightweight camping exercise due to space considerations, if your gear doesn't fit in your boat you don't bring it
