In the 3-10 Ton Class, nine yachts entered Race One four days after the Concours d’Honneur over a course of 19 km. Two of them were foreign entrants, the Dutch “Mascotte” owned by Henri Smulders and the American “Frimousse,” but only the Dutch boat played a significant role, coming in second. The Dutch had hoped to win but according to the local press could not match the technically more up-to-date British and French boats. The winner of the race was the French “Femur” with Henri Gilardoni at the helm. Émile Michelet, helmsman on the “Turquoise,” also competed successfully in the ½-1 Ton Class.
