open water wetsuit or no wetsuit

Hi there all

I have entered the calcton triathlon (oly distance) for september. In the race instruction it says that a decison on the day will be made whether we do the swim with or without wetsuits. I am figuring the water in clacton will be over 17 degrees by that time which is the BTA regulation for non wetsuit swims.

I suspect my openwater swim time will be increased due to not having the usual buoyancy I am used to in openwater with my wetsuit.

So should I start training in openwater now without the wetsuit or leave it for a while until the water warms up.

I guess I am asking in a very round about way how quickly can you make the transition from openwater with a wetsuit to openwater without a wetsuit.
