Hello Sue,

Just been using my drysuit which now leaks! So not sure how much the session will be practical and actually in the water, but I am reluctant to be in cold water for very long if I cannot get it sorted. Repairing in time is unlikely as I can see the seams across the back are disintergating and presume this is where the water ingress occurs, as it is my core that gets wet. I will make enquiries about borrowing one but not hopeful. Thought I should put you on notice at this late stage.

Hi Linda, you can get as wet as you like really! We will also revisit tows and do some rescue scenarios so there should be plenty of practical elements to do where you don't need to be in the water too
