Firmly in the no way camp. Hope this thread doesn't put the newbies off. A casual glance by an outsider might lead them to think that PIWC is some sort of S&M rubber nappy filling childhood regression thing.

Are any of the practioners on here high court judges, MPs or such like?

Hey Marksey. So to alleviate the headaches I invariable get after a vigourous sailing session, I need to drink more prior to getting on the water, continue drinking whilst out there, pee in my hikers & drink more when i get home!  Excellent. I like smelling like an old tramp!!!!!

Do remember though that in cold weather whilst you may feel temporarily warmer, the act in fact has a cooling effect, as you move heat from inside your body to the outside. Further, those areas of the skin that are warmed will see increased bloodflow, causing even more cooling.

Don't forget that all those hangover-busting caffeinated drinks have a lovely dieuretic effect.

Its a definite yes for me and proud!  

I have learnt not to do it during hot light wind event when there is no chance for a decent dunking /hose down. If Im gagging from the smell I feel a little sorry for the bloke trapezeing next to me! So sometimes I try to hold on till the finish.

But on your average day I would usually get my first power piss in before I hit the water, normally during the sail pulling up process. However, I do know a man who sometimes gets his first power piss in before exiting the changing rooms! 

But why do we do this in our wetsuits? because we need to piss so much, why do we need to piss so much?.. Because we drink so much.. Why do we drink so much? Read on

Dehydration impairs both physical and mental performance in all types and levels of sport, yet it can be avoided (or at least minimised) by appropriate drinking strategies. Exercise produces heat. Prevention of overheating occurs by transfer of heat to the skin by vasodilation of the cutaneous circulation, and by the cooling effect of evaporation of sweat. Exercise causes body fluid losses from moisture in exhaled air as well as from sweating. Although sweat rates are highest under conditions of high-intensity exercise in heat and high humidity, total fluid losses can be appreciable in very prolonged events, whatever the conditions. Unless fluid losses are replaced by drinks, sweating causes progressive depletion of circulating blood volume, leading to hypohydration (commonly called dehydration) and a thickening of blood. This places a strain on the cardiovascular system, with a rise in heart rate in order to maintain adequate blood flow to exercising muscles and vital organs. As blood volume depletes, blood flow to the skin is reduced. As a result, sweating decreases and heat dissipation from the skin is impaired, causing body core temperature to rise, potentially leading to heat stress.


Even low levels of dehydration have physiological consequences. A loss of 2% bodyweight (just 1kg for a 50kg person) causes an increase in perceived effort and is claimed to reduce performance by 10-20% A fluid loss exceeding 3-5% bodyweight reduces aerobic exercise performance noticeably and impairs reaction time, judgement, concentration and decision making.
