  Formulas are nearly useless

In the spring around her, the water can be 40 degrees or less on days when the air temp is in 70 or more. Using that formula, you'd be dangerously under-dressed in the event of a swim. That's why I consider spring to be the most dangerous time of the year for paddlers; warm air lulls them into thinking that they can paddle in T-shirts and shorts, but the water is cold enough to kill.
