Penny Simmons Wins 2012 IOD World Champs

November 2, 2012

Due to high winds that gusted between 25-30 knots in the Great Sound, the race committee decided for the safety of all concerned to cancel today’s final races. With the cancellation, Bermuda’s Penny Simmons has won the 2012 IOD World Championship.

Simmons finished on top of the leaderboard with 15 points, Elliott Wislar finished in second with 23 points, Day One leaders Bill Widnall and Matt Lindblad finished in 3rd place with 28 points.
