The Finn was a sailing event on the Sailing at the 1972 Summer Olympics program in Kiel-Schilksee. Seven races were scheduled and completed. 35 sailors, on 35 boats, from 35 nations competed.[2]

Race schedule[3][edit]

Due to the interruption of the Games on 6 September 1972, the race was postponed till 7 September. Then the race conditions were unsuitable. Heavy fog and poor wind conditions made it not possible to race until September 8. Also the medal ceremony was also postponed until 8 September.

Course area and course configuration[edit]

For the Finn course area C(harlie) was used. The location (54°27'30'’N, 10°17'450'’E) points to the center of the 1.5nm radius circle.[1][4] The distance between mark 1 and 3 was about 1.5nm.

Weather conditions[edit]

Final results[5][edit]

Due to the time limit for finishing of half an hour after the winner and light air conditions, only three Finn sailors were able to finish in race six.
