Hi all. In search of a good evening read, I decided to read; "Required Equipment" on our WaterTribe webpage. It is quite riveting.
I noticed a PLB is required equipment for all WaterTribe events. This is news to me since I last entered the 2010 NCUM.
A PLB really isn’t a practical purchase for me. I have a Spot 2, GPS, phone, flares, etc…. and paddle in relatively safe waters. I understand the need for a PLB in a higher risk environment such as a WaterTribe event, but I can’t justify purchasing one for how infrequently I would participate in a WaterTribe race.
Are there any companies that would rent a PLB? I would like to register for the 2012 NCC-100.
