Hey Guys
I want to get into doing downwinders on the King of the Cut course. Maybe prep for last place in the 2020 race (see how we go) Is there anyone living in Safety Bay who wants to go down as often as possible (takes 2 vehicles) and have a crack and also do distance/fitness paddling in Safety Bay area? I work FIFO so when I'm home I have plenty of opportunity.

Also, what Safety gear is required? Do you carry a PLB? Mini flare? phone in a pouch? I've even seen footage of a guy who takes a spare paddle with him strapped to the front of his board (on adventures) Paddle leashes? I have a bright yellow PFD which has a camel back built into it, which is also pretty good impact protection. I'd need a helmet to race so might as well get used to that. Does anyone use waist leashes? So many questions....
