There is no official kit for these days as they are a rally, but general seaworthyness is a must as well as emergency equipment, and of course common sense. Basically all good all round boating preparation.

Again, no set in stone rules, but all you have mentioned is good practice and prep.

In a poker run helmets are optional and most people don't bother

So's common sense, although quite few don't bother with that either
