From the 2000 Head of the Ohio
 Race Committee:


Due to unusually heavy waves on the course for this year's Head of the Ohio Regatta, there were numerous cases of boats missing bow numbers. Some we were able to track using back numbers, relative finish position, and video evidence. The following list contains the boats that we know started the race, but which we have been unable to confirm as finishing. Some of these are known to have swamped on the course and therefore did not complete the race. Others we know finished the race but cannot be assigned a finish time with any degree of certainty.

After 2-1/2 days of reviewing the timing records, the results we have produced are the best we can hope to do.
