Anyone else considering the run of the Charles 26 Apr 09?

I've been looking at doing the Run of the Charles race in Boston on 26 Apr. My only concern is that the water temps in Rhode Island may preclude many practice paddles beforehand, which may make the 9 or 6 mile race a better option than the 19 mile race.

Any other faltbooters considering this event? Any thoughts/recommendations for cold water training for someone who has a wetsuit but is too cheap to buy a dry suit (last week we had an air temp near 65 F, with a water temp of 37 F...my informal decision criteria for paddling in a wetsuit have been: water temp above 45 F and (air temp+water temp) above 100F.)
