I strongly recommend stroboscop flashlight for every person. Standrd flash attached to life jacket is visible from no more than 2 miles. stroboscop flashlight is visible from 10 miles! And one epirb (can be personal working on 121,5 MHz, or better 406 kind working on 121,5 and 406 MHz). This small thing is not very expensive now, and you can buy secon-hand.

Strobes are a good idea - after a rare outing in the dark on Saturday night, I find myself wondering how I would find an MOB in the dark.

But EPIRBs - I'm not convinced that they are much use for coastal cruising. Essential, I agree, for long distance trips like you're plannning, Arek. But for my own use I can think of better ways to spend 400 than a device which has a 2-hour delay for getting asistance. Also the 121,5 MHz satellites are due to be turned off in 2008 so those devices have a limited lifetime as well as limited functionality.
