Rio - is actually called "freestyle" not "crawl"...

Right will find a shop and have wettie fitted.  Will purchase ex hire wettie off TriUK.

Will purchase a bike on credit.  Any suggestions on shops that do this?

Hurrah!  Sorting out stuff is making the whole "triathlon" thing not quite as scary

Hmmm, do the wetsuits come in size small but with a 36 ins inside leg I wonder, with the joints in the right places????

Reason why I am reluctant t get into this... as I have been told I most likely need to have one made to fit me, because even if I settled for the 'capri' look on a normal wetsuit, the knee joits would be halfway up my thighs... If they allow me, I swim without, after all it is only 750 metres... long enough to warm up but not so long you get hypothermic, hypothetically speaking...

Fired off an e-mail to them to asl what the leglength on them is, I would need an F2 otherwise...

"Blobfish - any chance of you holding onto that until I see what size I am?2

To be quite honest this looks good value

you struggling Plummie? What is says is £25 hire for the season, you pay for the suit, but they refund you £75 if you return it intact at the end of the season... seems very good value, so I have asked them how long the legs on these things are

Hello Alex

 You don't happen to have a spare wetsuit hanging around the place have you? You MTB last year was a great success so much so, I have bought my own, but now I find myself lacking a wetsuit

I bought a tri-uk ex hire at the end of the season last year.  Chap from tri-uk looked at me and decided what I needed.  Fattmatt put it on me whilst I stood there feeling poorly and it fits perfectly.  So tight it doesn't let in water! Unless I pull open the neck!  Brilliant to swim in though!

Cost me £50. I was worried about the size and wonder if I'd got it myself I'd have got it looser!

Han, I have a shortie wetsuit Mr Phil left me but all in all you prob need to go somewhere and get one fitted. I am swimming in an o'neal surfing one that cost £70

I might make this my first open water next year...  bit early for me this year as only just getting things back together.  I'll clap this year and do it in 2009.

It's not quite open water. It is sort of alge infested dock.

Nam, you can do it now! Its like a big open pool with funny tasting water. Its a very well run event and is perfect as 1st time open water event for those slightly nervous novices.

I have ordered a hire qwetsuit from triuk now... only £25, can't go wrong there, can I? Size F2 apparently and it does not matter that the legs are short as long as it fits accross the chest...

There are signs up around the dock warning of bubonic plague if you swim in it.

We stayed in the new dockside flats last Octoer for a week. There were Kayak paddlers learning to eskimo role and do other water stuff all the time we were there. They still had a healthy glow at the end of the week. I am going to enter as I have just found out about it.

The flats are very nice to stay in by the way. The Prom is like Telly Tubby land. Its a great spot.
