I would add a spare paddle, paddle float, bilge pump and marine radio (or at least a cell phone) to the list.
About a week ago I went out in calm conditions and came home in very challenging conditions; I almost needed the paddle float. A couple of weeks before that I broke a paddle getting back in my boat after a rest stop. The message is: prepare for nasty conditions every time you get on the water. The additional gear you need for nasty weather is not much heavier, more numerous, or more expensive than what you need for calm conditions.
