Notes[edit]

Rozenn was penalized by the jury for touching a buoy in race 1.[1] She was awarded a number of points equal to that he would have obtained arriving last, decreases by one point.

Other information[edit]

The races drew a considerable number of spectators and the large amount of yachts to watch the races in le Havre. The Harbour was packed with different tonnage vessels. Offshore the Fleurus, Cassini, and Mangini destroyers were present. Most of the members of the international Jury followed the races aboard of the Almee, a yacht owned by Henri Menier.[1]

These three French destroyers were present during the sailing of the 1900 Summer Olympics off the coast of Le Havre (FRA).
