Can i just warn you all I will be taking my tent to Outlaw.........this new tent has had 3 outings......the first was to Enduroman last year where we had torrential rain and storms.........the second to IMW where the tail end of a hurricane tried to take it out and it was extremly wet............and then last week back at enduroman when we put it up in horrendous rain which meant we were pitching on a lake almost and we had to bail out the inside of the tent........

so as I am camping at outlaw i suggest everyone takes all the winter wet weather gear in preperation..........

apologise in advance

I am prepared for the worst Seren.  I even bought some of those hand and feet warmer things to go in my shoes and gloves for when I get out of the water and on to the bike   The guy in the shop was quite amused until G said I was doing an IM then he was in awe! lol

I'm looking to acclimatise tomorrow with a standard triathlon in forecasted gales and driving rain.  I've been down to the beach this morning and the breaking surf is already looking like fun .

Seron.....get a room...

well if it's coming in 3's - I've been at 3 open water tris this year - 2 as an official, one as a competitor (Windsor this Sunday)

all 3 have turned into duathlons - 1st was water was too cold; 2nd was sea was too rough; and now Windsor have pulled the swim due to too much water (flow is too strong and lots of debris)

so you lot should be fine at Outlaw!

I will pack my waterproof socks - it has never once rained when I have remembered to take them with me in all the years I've had them!!

I'm working on the basis that things come in 3s........the last 2 years at Outlaw have been dry and ideal for racing so am fully expecting the same to occur this year

I'm with Jaffa.  Last 2 years at Outlaw has been fab weather.

"Windsor have pulled the swim due to too much water..."

Is it also the wrong kind of water?  Too WET, maybe?

I shall be slumming it in a camper van!  All those stories about camping at IMW was enough to put me off camping!  Especially in England!

I've been keeping my eye on the forecast and for the last week it's been "thunder storms and showers, 16 degrees" but the latest is " cloudy and 20 degrees".

So that's that sorted.
