5) Pack carefully Getting warm and if skins swimming, dry (ish) will help you be ready for the next swim. I swear by Eskeez thermals as they are designed to cope with water and I found on my Scilly challenges that they dont feel wet on the 5th and 6th changeover.
Eskeez kit scores very highly on the snuggle factor - it's like pulling on a comfort blanket. There's an Oooh factor as it's very soft and the length of the top covers all the important little places. My previous base layer was not as close fitting or thick as this and that makes all the difference. Pauline Barker
