The defending champion, Penny Simmons will participate in an attempt to win his eighth championship.  Penny won his first World Championship in 1985 at San Francisco and is always a competitor to be taken seriously.  Three time World Champion, Charlie Van Voorhis from the host fleet will make every attempt to prevent Penny for taking the Bjarne Aas Trophy back to Bermuda.
