I personally find 4.5 too be perfect for me 9 degrees is a lot of float  and don't even go near zero unless you havea damn near perfect stroke and don't ever move about!

Great news Will 

*puts on nurse voice* Just don't be overdoing it

Good news Will!

My first half IM on Sunday with Sossige (Grafman).  Weather's looking sunny and hot, so question: best sun cream?  I'm thinking P20.  I'm bald, burn easily, so something that'll last the whole race would be best.  Any advice very gratefully received!

P20 is great apply and give time to dry before putting on wetsuit.

Top tip get someone else to apply bright red raw where I missed a bit!

P20 all the way! I used P20 factor 50 in Lanza - 13 hours of racing in bright sun and no sunburn at all. But as Ali said, make sure its dry before you put wettie on.

Suncream you can put on before the wettie and it lasts all day? Wow, I'll be having some of that.

Great swim with the tri club tonight. Just for his own amusement, the bad man made us do a length of butterfly. If I live to be 100 I will never master that.

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

Great, thanks guys.  P20 it is.  But no, I WON'T be asking Sossige to apply it.
