I think one of the pirate ironmen (real name Mark, can't remember his forum name) filled his wetsuit in this manner in a race. Might be the same race with FB's story.
Not sure if he got changed in T1!
yep - true story. 'twas at Vitruvian 2005 a couple of months after the first big pirate sailing to IMCH. he said to me before we entered the water that he could do with a dump but I thought no more about it. sure enough - he did - in his wetsuit in the water as desperation overtook his struggle against containment. and no - he didn't change in T1 as it was a day of pissing rain so he got washed off on the bike course (after suffering 2 punctures as retribution - ha!!). it was only after when I saw our swim times that I clicked that he was just ahead of me for the whole swim.....but with the Rutland Water goose poo, I'm not sure I would have noticed much difference in taste
take a look at Brighton & Hove Tri on 11th September - new event but with closed road bike course, and a sea swim. organised by John Lunt who used to run Human Events (all the Dorney events) and was the lead organiser for the 2012 Olympics event - so with him behind it, it should be good.
also Hever Castle tri on 25th September - part of the Castle Tri series - one of the UK's biggest events now with c5000 taking part. near Sevenoaks.
