We’ve been testing the water at Llangorse today and this morning it was 15 and 16 degrees but after the sun it had risen to 16 and 17 degrees at various points in the course. With the promised sun we’re expecting it to be that temperature or slightly warmer this weekend. It was crystal clear and tasted great (Nicola swims with her mouth open!)
Wetsuits are optional for those of you doing the Saturday swim but please bring some warm clothes, a large towel etc. to change into once you’ve exited the water. Hot drinks and cake will be provided. On Saturday you can wear gloves, socks, bonnets etc. and you’ll be given a thick neoprene race hat.
For the triathlon swim on Sunday, wetsuits will be mandatory if the temperature falls below 15 degrees (unlikely) but advisable. Gloves and socks are not allowed but you can wear a bonnet under your race hat. Please bring some warm clothes to wear in case the swim has to be postponed due to the mist and tailor your food intake accordingly.
We’ll take the temperature once again on Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning.
See you all at Llangorse
Nicola and the team
