Wetsuits and clothing for a May UK triathlon
I have taken to triathlon's whilst living in Abu Dhabi over the last few years. A great feature is that we have a guaranteed pleasant climate during our autumn-winter-spring to train and compete, usually in nothing more than a try suit.
I am competing in my first UK triathlon in Porthcawl in May (22nd, Olympic distance). Can anyone advise me how warm I need to wrap up, especially for the swim. Do competitors usually wear extra swim caps, something on their feed?
I was planning on a shell top or similar over a tri suit for the bike and run - will this suffice in c16 degrees?
