Yep P20 is ace, make sure you let it all sink in before you put the wettie on and as a precaution I would put another layer on when you take it off in T1

I had a good OW session last night, really settled my nerves for Sunday.  It's a beach start ... I'll be holding back to let the rough & tumblers go first.

I find myself back on Guernsey for a few days which will give me the chance to get in a few sea swims across the course for the Sept half distance event that's over here.

As for much of the UK the weather is wonderful with clear skies and a warmish breeze coming in off the sea. Sadly water sea temperature is close to 13 degrees which of course is decidedly chilly. Thankfully I packed a wet suit as speedos at that temperature would, for me at least, be a no no.

Tim, just read the brief for Sunday. 'Running' beach start, that will be the fastest part of my swim then

Two laps as well so you have to get out the water and run round for the second lap. I havent done a tri where you have had to do that before.
