Participants28 from 28 countries

The Finn turned out to be an easy victory for Barcelona native José María van der Ploeg. Van der Ploeg won only one race, the sixth, but placed second twice, and after six races, was so far ahead that he did not start the final race, his gold medal already secured. Silver medalist Brian Ledbetter of the United States was the only one of the medalists who had previously competed at the Olympics, as Ledbetter was 10th in this event in 1988 at Busan. In the second race, it appeared that Canadian Hank Lammens had won, but he was soon disqualified when it was discovered he had failed to pack a life jacket aboard his boat. Had his victory stood he would have placed fourth overall, but ended up in 13th place.
