but when im on the wire it just dribbles out the leg and
gets washed away by the spray. then i just conveniently
fall in or dunk myself and rise the inside out. It doesnt
stay there floating around inside the wetsuit.

Anyway there are plenty other more disgusting things in the
water we sail in anyway. Where do you think all the number
2s from small yachts end up eh?

I try to avoid doing it (it does knack the glues and the neoprene a bit), but sometimes, well, it just can't be helped can it? Middle of a long race, you're getting soaked anyway....

I'd admit to been guilty but that was in my old wetsuit.

The events at Datchet and QMSC where you are doing 4 races back to Laser sailors stand on the back and allow nature to take its course!

Are the people who pee in their wetsuits the same ones who take their wetsuits off in the shower ?

I always wondered why they did that.

certainly if I have peed in my wetuit, I will take it off in the shower- but I also often take it off in the shower if I've been sailing on salt water, as it helps give it a rinse out. Or if I've been sweating a lot. Or if I'm rather cold.

 

Never piss in a communal shower, though. Shower at home, that's another matter!

As a child I was shown a wetsuit that someone else had peed into....the resulting stain was enough to keep me on the straight and narrow for good.

exactly, and its way worse for us wimmin to get everything peeled off ready to go...but only if I'm on a big lake or the sea and not within easy access to the loos...

besides, I am constantly falling out of the c boat, so plenty of rinsing goes on.

In Canada last year in between races, an hour at least from shore, I looked around and all I could see was mooning men ....then I fellout of my boat....
the same, but different...
