I am doing the swim leg of the triathlon as part of a 3 man team. Can you let me know what the water temperature will approx be? Is a wet suit compulsory and if so, will it be ok to wear a sleeveless shorty?
Many thanks

Whether wetsuits are mandatory depends on water temperature, as a general rule wetsuits will only become optional in water temperatures above 16oC. Shorty wetsuits are fine – your torso needs to be covered at least. For the water temp prediction, we are hoping for 18-20oC! 🙂
