Open water swim season is drawing closer, by late May/early June we will be moving from the pool to the ocean and local lakes. Unless you have a high tolerance for cold temperatures, we strongly recommend you invest in a wetsuit!
If you are interested in purchasing a wetsuit, either for the first time or to replace your current one, please let Alison know. We are working with a couple of retailers to organize wetsuit trials for the club at Kits Pool in late May, this will give you a chance to both try on suits and actually get in the water and swim in them.
Finding a wetsuit that fits properly can be a time consuming process (and not just because they take forever to put on!) so it's a good idea to start looking early.
