From 7am to 7pm averages are 12C air, 13 knots wind, sea temperature will be about 10C, so not very warm - especially coming from Florida. You might get away with the dry suit if you fall into the water enough. If you hire a suit, a basic 5/3 would do.

If I did my math right that is drysuit weather for me :-)
... I grew up in northern WI, farming & skiing in all sorts of cold & playing in Lake Michigan, but 20+ years in FL and my blood is thin!

:lol:
True about the thin Florida blood. My cousin's husband is from Florida and on a visit he was wearing 2 pullovers when he saw two local girls sunbathing in bikini's.
A bit like these two girls in 5C air temperature and 9C water in January at Magheroarty in the NW of Ireland.

I plan to go to Achill Island in May ; do you think Hydrofoil is adapted in the lake or on the ocean ? In the affirmative, I wonder if Pure magic could rent one HF or if I should take mine in the plane ...

Hi Regis I think the lake may be too shallow for foiling but Francois Collusi is the man to ask as he runs Puremagic Lodge /Adventure centre on Achill, plenty of wave spots along the west coast (Keel being the main one in Achill.
Worth considering staying at the lodge for the famous pizza alone!!!
Contact Catherine / Francois http://puremagic.ie/dublin/

A little taster of what it can be like, a video from last years Battle for the Lake event.
