It was great to meet Cranky on race morning and I apologize to her for my completely incoherent responses. I am usually much more articulate than that. I did see a sea snake in the water while swimming which encouraged me to get moving.
There is no good reason to wear budgie smugglers anymore. Even the swimmers have moved on. Some tranny cycling kit and casual wear would be awesome. Also if you are desperate for swim wear some jammers would be much more tasteful.
