First of all, I needed to find some warm, waterproof and comfortable equipment to paddle in.
Given the choppy conditions and therefore the high risk of falling in, I went for an Olaïan 4/3 mm neoprene surfing wetsuit, neoprene boots and waterproof socks. To give myself plenty of grip and manoeuvrability, I took a little pair of non-watertight gloves (the only part of me that was cold).
And of course the Itiwit Wairgo Hydra buoyancy aid to keep me safe if necessary and help me stay hydrated easily during the race....
