This will be extremely fun experience if you haven't been in the race before and yes we will provide lifejacket (PFD) and a paddle but we do recommend getting your own lifejacket if possible.
Paddlers usually wear swimsuit underneath regular clothes but any workout clothes that can get wet will be fine.

Items to bring for practice:
Required- Signed SCDBC Waiver form (I will bring some extra at practice). This is required before you get on the boat.

Recommended– sunscreen (sun protection), sunglass (eye protection), hat (additional sun protection), water (it's a workout), towel (to dry yourself since you'll get wet), quarters (if parking at meter lot)

Optional– folding chair (if you want comfortable place to sit), change of clothes (if you want to get out of wet clothes), sandals/aqua shoes (some folks like it barefoot, other sandals, I like the aqua socks), snacks (especially if you didn't have time for breakfast), water gloves (it's nice to have them to grab on to the paddle)
