I'm all for renting as well...that's what I did for my first tri last spring. Out of curiosity, what tri are you doing in New England, and when and where is it? Don't forget New England gets its warmest water in September and October as it circulates north from the Gulf of Mexico. Last year I did my first two tris, and the one in June I had to wear a wetsuit because of the temp, but the one on the same course later, in late september, I didn't have the need for the wetsuit because the warm waters had finally come up from teh Gulf of Mexico. Either way, good luck with the tri, and when you are wearing the wetsuit, don't forget it will help keep you buoyant so you can just concetrate on forward motion and not staying afloat as much also. At least the wetsuit I use helps me float, otherwise I can start to sink like a rock.
