I am off to abu dhabi in beginning of march to do the short course. Can anyone tell me whether you are allowed to wear the small neoprene wetsuit things over your tri suit in the swim or are these now illiegal?
Anyone else going?
I done it last year and the wet-suit was banned. I'm going back this year minus the wet-suit.
The water temp on the morning was 24deg C..... so I wouldn't bother with it.
The water is also very very salty so be prepared.
Plenty of people were wearing swim skins.... I'm not bothering with that. this year its tri-suit all the way!
youll swim faster in a swimskin....not sure about whether they are banned or not...cant remember if they wore them in kona in 2010??
they are so much faster than tri suits...take milliseconds to take off...and you wont boil, so makes sense if you are allowed.
