NOOD 2012 Logo


A second consecutive day of favorable winds opened the door for a highly-competitive final day of action at the Sperry Top-Sider NOOD Regatta San Francisco. Going against a stacked field of accomplished sailors in the J/105 fleet, local skipper, Scooter Simmons from San Francisco Yacht Club and crew navigated their boat, Blackhawk, with perfection through three final day races and earned the overall event victory. As the overall winner in San Francisco, Simmons has received an invitation to participate in the Sperry Top-Sider NOOD Championship Regatta in the British Virgin Islands to compete in the season-ending event aboard Sunsail 44i's against the other overall winners in the 2012 series.
