LWL...right. Either way...but i'd rather wear a tether than a wetsuit. I fell in the water up in Maine in the summer a few years back just while at the dock and it took every ounce of my strength just to get back in my dinghy
. Gave me new respect for the sapping power of cold water!
Funny..but the kids up there go swimming in the same temp water. Don't know how they do it!
