This was only the second time the 49er FX class was held at the Olympics, with the 2016 event having been won by the Brazilian pair of Martine Grael and [Kahena Kunza[(). They had also won the 2014 World Championships in the class, and finished second in 2015, 2017, and 2019. However, the top crew since Rio had been the Dutch tandem of Annemiek Bekkering and Annette Duetz, who were seventh at Rio. Also expected to challenge for medals were the Spanish crew of Támara Echegoyen and Paula Barcelo, who had won the 2019 Worlds. Echegoyen had been at the helm of the Spanish boat that won gold in the three-person keelboat match racing event at the 2012 London Olympics.

The British pair of Charlotte Dobson and Saskia Tidey won the first two races in the regatta, but Grael / Kunza came to win the third phase. After Bekkering and Duetz won races four and six, the Brazilian pair was only in fifth place, but Brazil won the seventh race to move into a medal position. Bekkering and Duetz still led through eleven races, but Brazil moved ahead in the penultimate phase, and took the lead going into the medal race.

Brazil finished the medal race in third place but when the Netherlands placed only ninth, Grael and Kunza had defended their gold medal. The German crew of Tina Lutz and Susann Beucke moved past Bekkering / Duetz in the medal race to secure the silver medal with the Dutch pair taking bronze, as Echegoyen and Barcelo were off the podium in fourth place.
