Great Chesapeake Bay Swim 2002

Water conditions for GCBS 2002 were choppy due to a good tailwind that pushed nearly 600 swimmers and of a ton of neoprene and zippers eastward towards the finish. The favorable wind produced good finishing times that were about 5 minutes faster than average.  Water temp. was 72 F.  There were 642 entrants (451 males; 191 females), 585 starters, and  581 finishers (411 males; 170 females) for GCBS 2002 (event information).  57 entrants did not show up on race day and only 4 starters did not finish the event (61 names). 

Action Sports International (ASI) captured individual finishing photos of all but 122 swimmers (only 49 of these 122 swimmers were not pictured in part in the background of other swimmers' photos).  The ASI roll and frame number for all finishers are provided here.  Additional photos of GCBS 2002 have also been posted by LIN-MARK and

A videotape of GCBS 2002 by Jane Rice along with the ASI thumbnails and the official LIN-MARK results ordered by the time-of-day (adjusting for the 15-minute difference between Wave 1 and Wave 2) allowed for the identification of all 82 swimmers (14% of finishers) who did not wear a wetsuit.  The 51 males and 31 females who did not wear wetsuits were, as a group, faster and younger than the 499 wetsuit wearers.

 BIB numbers were posted 12JUN02.  Wave 1 (slower swimmers) had RED CAPS numbered 1-303; Wave 2 had YELLOW CAPS numbered 316-656.
