four recepticles and two ceiling fans


20 amp breaker, 12/2 wire. 4 receptacles daisy chained together, come up to switch then two ceiling fans with no light. All outside on a covered deck. With handrail but no screen or glass. Is this safe, and too code? Would a gfci breaker be the way to go? If I wire a gfci receptacle up stream, can I run the fans off the load side? I am thinking around 75 feet of wire. Is plastic conduit a decent choice as most everything will be exposed.

Considered wet location, so 12/2 nm-b wire can not be used.

Take power to switch first, the to first receptacle.
Make the receptacle a WR/GFCI and then use none gfci WR receptacles.

I read your reply probably 15 times. Now I exactly understand. At first I was just going to listen to your advice, but now I feel like I really learned something. Can not thank you enough.
