I know that it's probably the same day as the training tri, but is anyone or has anyone done / doing the Colonial Beach Tri?

I saw a mention for it in a post from a while back, but besides that I'd never even heard about this race until I stumbled upon it on Active.

I just hope the race is better then their low budget web site.

This is an AWESOME low key triathlon. There are no more than 300 competitors and you can get up early and drive down early on race day. I have done this race four times and absolutely love it (plus I've placed twice there). The people are so friendly down there. I would do it again this year, 'cept it's the same day as the training tri. I'll be there with a bunch of volunteers running the show. Good luck and have fun! -hugh

Does anybody know if this has been a wetsuit race in the past? It looks like the water temps down there are floating in the mid to upper 70's and the air temp is supposed to hit 90 Saturday, making me think the olympic will be non-wetsuit (which could be bad considering the bacteria scare - http://www.dctriclub.com/forum/messages.cfm?tid=560F01BE-B1DA-AD02-7C55635B9432098C - though i was swimming down on the no. neck this past weekend and still walking today).
