First post in this forum so kinda feel like an impostor.
While most people at this time of the year are looking at transitioning from open water to the pool I am interested in doing the opposite. I started pool swimming regularly for the Swim For A Mile challenge a few months ago and now that it looks like that is never going to happen I am looking for a new challenge and thinking about doing some open water swims/competitions next year (or whenever things like that are allowed again), maybe even an aquabike.
So my question:
If I am going to be swimming in open water (probably Loughrea lake as it is the closest open water to me) and possibly the sea, what thickness of wet suit should I be looking at?
