Lots easier to handle out of water than into it. In training, run it in the other order - less watery first.
Judges did not indicate an order. I assumed that you could do either blind. I did not ask as I already decided that since the short blind was hot (and the wind was left to right) I was going to do it first. Funny how things are. Was worried more about Rose (not a very water enthusiast) on that blind than Belle (who seeks water). Plus they just had the two water marks.
