The swim will not be wetsuit legal (below 78 degrees), as it has never been in all previous years. The water temperature should be in the 80′s, too warm to swim in a wetsuit. If the water temperature as measured by the USAT Head Official on race morning is below 84 degrees, then participants may wear a wetsuit but will not be eligible for awards. This should only be done if necessary as the water will be very warm in July. If you want to wear a wetsuit and do not own one, you can rent one from www.wetsuitrental.com.
