Some really helpful info in your page but I’m still in need of help. I’m actually an endurance runner rather than a triathlete; I live in sark in thand Channel Islands and a group of us from our running club though it would be take part as a new challenege. I can’t actually swim (entered with the guys saying I could kayak instead) but the rest of the team have found me a wet suit, buoyancy aid and plan to chuck me in the sea off our Harbour quay and plan for me to to just paddle. As a non swimmer and non triathlete don’t have much kit, I would be able to just wear my sports bra and my regular Lycra running shorts under the wet suit and then put my team vest on top after the swim? I appreciate that I’d have to go commando under the shorts, but would I get away with this? Race is in 4 days time and I’m bricking it!
