well, this will not help your nerves, but 69 is not relatively warm IMHO. That is cold, you are going to be cold. the good news is that you will warm up when you are on the bike and your feet.
My advice, which is of no use now, is:
Practice eating before the race. Based on what time the race is, test at the time and see what works best.
If you are unsure of the water temp, get in it before the race (like weeks before, days before) if possible and see what it is like.
How long is the tri? How much do you swim now? In what temps do you normally swim?
