FormatPoints awarded for placement in each race. Best nine of eleven scores to count for final placement.

Dutchwoman Margriet Matthijsse earned the silver medal in this class in 1996 and captured the opening race. She would later win the final three races, but poor results in races 2, 3, and 8 ruined her gold medal chances. Britain’s Shirley Robertson won only two races, but was consistent, with no counting finish worse than ninth, and won the gold medal by placing third in the final race. She needed only a fifth-place finish to stay ahead of Matthijsse, who won her second consecutive silver medal. Robertson was named ISAF World Sailor of the Year in 2000. She later switched to the Yngling three-person keelboat and won a gold medal in that class in 2004.
