The 1 – 2 ton was a sailing event on the Sailing at the 1900 Summer Olympics program in Meulan. It was the third-lightest weight class. Two races were held as part of the Expo 1900 in Paris. Initially only the first race was recognized by the International Olympic Committee. However currently the participants of both first and second races are present in the IOC database as medalists, so the second races had been recognized by the IOC, and so according to IOC two gold, two silver and two bronze medals were retrospectively awarded for this event. The first was held on 22 May 1900, the second on 25 May. On the Olympic race at least 21 sailors, on 8 boats, from 3 nations competed.
The 1900 Olympic scoring system was used.

Race 2, initially part of the Expo program
This race saw with Aschenbrödel one more boat competing. One day earlier they had entered in the ½—1 ton class, but were not permitted to race as their boat weighed in at 1.041 tons. In this class the German crew sailed the lightest boat, yet easily finished in the quickest time. Their low handicap served only to widen the gap between them and the second-place Swiss team.
