Gashouse Cove Swim canceled

February 8, 2020

This year’s Gashouse Cove swim was canceled due to high winds and choppy water.  The swim was canceled only after 15 swimmers had checked in and some of the pilots.

No swim qualifications were awarded, although many who showed up to swim did venture into the cove.  The conditions were quite choppy, near the flag turning into substantial waves.  The water was high (the tide was flooding) and waves crashing into the Muni Pier and the Breakwater were kicking up huge sprays – which, some swimmers who ventured near the opening said, looked like sprays of rainbows.

The Swim Commissioners are grateful to all who showed up to work for the swim: the check-in group, the clothes wranglers, the timers, the galley workers, the clean-up crew and the pilots.  Since sign ups were stopped after the cancellation, only the check-in group, the galley and the clean-up crews were fully written down and credited with helps.  All others who were there ready to perform their chosen functions should contact Andrew Cassidy at to make sure that their name is added to the database.
