Do I have to wear a wetsuit?

Wetsuits are encouraged in nearly all open water swims. It will not only keep you warm but it will also help you swim faster. A wetsuit provides you with extra buoyancy across the backside and down the back of your thighs. This keeps you higher in the water… the higher you are the faster you swim. It will aid your swim immensely and help if you start to tire.

• It is compulsory to wear a wetsuit if the water temperature is less than 14 degrees celsius.
• It is optional to wear a wetsuit if the water temperature is between 14 and 22 degrees celsius.
• Wet-suits are banned if the water temperature is above 22 degrees Celsius.

    Did the Olympic Distance in 2019

    Swim was marked well enough. Transition area could have been bigger (more than enough room). Bike course signage could be a bit more frequent to reassure leaders as to which direction to be heading. Run course signage was perfect.

    Did the Olympic Distance in 2019

    Very good pre race info. Everyone REALLY friendly! Great, quick race timings. Two things that couldn’t be improved. Transition area too small so bikes everywhere. Numbered racking much better/safer. Signage not great, eg on bike route not clear which race was which direction. Swim end hard to see- would be better with bug buoy/sign! Thank you all. Oh yes, no race t shirt and few healthy snacks options after but entry fee low so maybe that’s why?
