Note on NEW USA Swimming Rules Regarding Wet Suits & Water Temperature
From Meet Director:
USA temperature requirements are very strict and affect insurance for the swim. So, there would be no option (for kids) but to wear a wetsuit if the temperature is below 64 at the time of the swim. The good news is that the water temperature at Keller is currently 66.2 degrees (https://www.nodc.noaa.gov/dsdt/cwtg/cpac.html) and has been steady at that for the past month or two. The bay water temperature does not change very fast and unless there’s a drastic change in the weather over the next week or two, the odds are good that it will be above 64 for the swim. However, there are no guarantees.

We will have swimmers enter the race on Friday before the swim so we can see what the water temp will be the night before.
