Head of the Dart SUP race weekend

On the 2nd April I took part in the Head of the Dart SUP challenge, this was my first event of the year and what a race to start with! I knew how beautiful the River Dart was and having the opportunity to paddle 8 miles of it in company was too good to miss.

My weekend started on the Saturday morning, my plan was to leave Southampton at 9am so I could arrive in Totnes for lunch time. This would give me plenty of time to find my B&B and settle in, before heading to the new Red Paddle Co HQ for early registration. The car was packed, I double and triple checked I had the essentials and then the apprehension set in! Driving to Dartmouth was going to be the longest drive I had done on my own and although I sort of knew the route from previous trips, I was getting myself worked up over it. 9am came around so I stood up from the sofa and talked myself into it. I thought of the picture someone had posted on Facebook earlier on in the year...

What I packed for the Head of the Dart SUP race

Two weeks ago I took part in the Head of the Dart (HotD) SUP event. This was my first event of

2017 and I was struggling to decide what I needed to take with me, because unlike my first ever event last year there was no easy popping home to collect something I might have missed.

Usually I am a very organised person and I have packed weeks before or at least started writing a list of items I need. For this event I was not that organised and left the packing and thinking of the event to the Friday before, luckily this didn't cause to much of a issue because I had most of what I needed ready at home.

This got me thinking, what do you need to take for a SUP event...
