Extremities tend to be a problem, and when you do need to stop in cold weather you'll want to add a layer.
I would suggest that you take a little more time messing with the cowboy if you have it. The Tempest is a friendly boat for that, and once you are in cold water you run into the issue of hands that start to get uncooperative. The cowboy, once mastered, is less dependent on having all the fingers working well than messing with a paddle float.
Sounds like you had a good time.
