Dont Forget the gopro !!!!!
Gecko helmet is GREAT but far too expensive for just a few hours per year ..
It fits perfectly well and is extremely light !
GoPro is on board but still need to play a lot with it before RI

Yes - I will have in addition to the 90l inbuilt tank 2x AVON fuel bladders + 1x flexible Zapcat tank in the SR .
This gives me in total 170 l fuel on board .

only under good conditions .. my Yamaha consumes 0.5 - 0.7l/km .
Still have space for 3x 20l plastic cans .
HMS considers a fuel stop on this segment which would help a lot !

great, do you leave from UK or u going to ireland with the car ? i will leave from Milford haven, need to ask to HMS if slipway is ok and if we can let our cars + trailer in a secured area.
i already emailed all marinas, we wont find a lot of petrol on pontoon, but most marina are next to petrol station betwen 1 mile or 10 mins by walk.

Most probably I will leave from Milford Haven by boat as the guys from the UK . HMS wrote me that secured parking is available there .
May be we can meet in Belgium or France to go to MH together ?
As for fuel - thereŽll be land support and each participant can put fuel cans on the van / trailer . At least this was mentioned in the info material HMS sent .
