Because the wind was gusting up to 31 mph, the swim from the Bay Bridge was changed to a Cove Star: from the beach to the repair; repair to the flag; flag to the opening; opening to the goal posts; and back to the beach. Roles changed, but credit was given to those who got up so early to participate, but whose services were not actually needed. All swimmers were credited with a qualified out-of-cove swim.
While places were recorded to insure that the same number of swimmers came out of the water as went in, times were not captured. Since some swimmers did not do the entire star, places were deemed unreliable, so the swimmers are listed in alphabetical order. Fewer pilots were needed than the usual out-of-cove ratio.
Many thanks to Amanda Ernzer, who had volunteered to be the medical personnel for the swim but was able to swim once the event had been changed.
