hi everybody
just a question
what's the max water temp I can be in the water with a 4/3 wetsuit.
it's the only suit I have, nothing between this and nothing.

as low as you can personally take. it often depends on your tolerances but I wouldnt use one in less than 12 degrees (4/3).

Its not a question of how cold you are when sailing...
The important thing is how cold will you be when you have to swim home.

Also depends on how sunny it is... black wetsuits absorb the suns ray and heat up. Depends on heaps of factors like how much heat you can handle (how much natural insulation you have etc).

Also how long you are in the water makes a huge difference. you don't want to be too cold out there.

BLOWN AWAY
