Racing Dinghy Attire

Does anyone have any suggestions on what to wear for early spring sailing on a racing dinghy (MX-Ray)?

I''ll be sailing on a couple of lakes in Colorado come March, so the water will be Cold (50 or less???).

I''m trying to decide if I should get a wet suit/wet gear combo or a dry suit. Does anyone have any suggestions, opinions, or recommendations?

Thanks in advance for your insight!

Re spring sailing gear;

Mx ray! your going to get wet. and its going to be cold!

Dont even look for options get a dry suit!

Up here in Alberta we go for a dry suit the bag kind and undress with layers of fleese. Even in the summer when it gets stormy the dry suits come out. Get the best one you can afford I like Helly Hanson, then for summer you can get a cheep wet suit.
