The following equipment list is considered to be a minimum requirement for club leaders. It is mandatory for club leaders to carry all of this equipment whenever they are leading a club meet. The fact that it is mandatory for club leaders does not preclude others from also carrying items from this list, indeed much of this would be encouraged for all paddlers.

  1. Packed lunch (unless the trip is very short)
  2. Flask with hot drink
  3. Emergency food and drink
  4. Spare clothing
  5. First aid kit
  6. Torch
  7. Whistle
  8. Matches and/or lighter
  9. Flares (one red parachute flare and one red pinpoint flare)
  10. Tow and deck lines
  11. Bailer and/or sponge
  12. Kayak/equipment repair kit
  13. Spare paddles
  14. Charts/maps
  15. Trip planning data and related information
  16. Compass
  17. Watch
  18. Group emergency shelter (kisu)
