Fall OWS Question





I am participating in a fall triathlon (Oct 4) at a lake in the Northeast with a .35 mile swim.  The organizers have a note that they strongly encourage use of a wetsuit, as water temperatures in the past have been in the 60s.   The wetsuit is encouraged, but not required. 



I do not have, nor have I ever tried, a wetsuit.  Plus I have sensitivity to neoprene.  I would really like to NOT wear a wetsuit if I can  help it.  Are there any alternatives?  I do have tri shorts that I wear, but normally I just wear that with a bathing suit.  Should I layer a tri top on top of that?  Swim skins?  Should I just tough it out since its a short swim?  Any suggestions?? I'm trying to avoid a huge cost here for one sprint distance race.



Thanks for your help!
