Can I wear a tri suit without having to use a tow-float as well?

No, you will be required to wear a tow-float if you wear a tri suit. It is the buoyancy from the neoprene in wetsuits that is important – a tri suit is just a long swimming costume.

As we will have around 6,000 swimmers taking part in the event, our priority is to get everyone out of the water safely. If a swimmer has a serious medical issue in the water, then the buoyancy provided by the wetsuit or tow-float should allow time for us to locate the swimmer and get them out the water.
