Just this month so far I've worn a 2.5mm shorty as recent as yesterday, and a 3/2 full suit last week. The week before that I was wearing both of them at the same time and was still cold. It mostly depends on the air temperature, the water is usually around 72 to 75F this time of year, and the air temperature depends on the wind direction.
Crandon, really? You love the butter flat water, which you won't get at Crandon...last I heard, you can't go in the sand bar shallows, has been restricted to lessons only...best check with management? Try Matheson Hammock instead for real butter flat smooth (and shallow) on low tide.
On the Fowey Rocks web site, you can toggle between different units, look in the upper 1/3 of the page for the "Unit of Measurement" box as it will probably default to US units:

For Matheson, no problem in NE to E to SE. North is no good, South is no good, W impossible. However, if you want to go out in the bay chop, you can on a N or S...but we won't be able to see your jumps/tricks.
Parking lot at bottom of image is where you launch from. Check in with the concession for the rules of the spot.

Celsius is fine for me, have no clue about Fahrenheit
Matheson Hammock sounds good! Will consider! Works with all Easterly winds?
Looking forward to finally meet you in person. A spring suit should be sufficient to keep you warm under normal conditions. Should there be a cold front generating a good wind you will prefer a full ⅔ suit as the air temperature can drop to 15 celsius during a cold front. Otherwise a shorty is sufficient as the water temperature is above 22 celsius. My son and I we might also join you for the TRIO in the Cayman Islands. Call me when you arrive in Miami, as I would like to join you to go kiting. My favorite is Crandon even though they have rules. Best wind and water conditions.
