Course area and course configuration[edit]

For the 2 to 3 ton the 19 kilometres (10 nmi) course in the Meulan course area was used.

Weather conditions[edit]

The race was troublesome due to an almost complete absence of any wind. Also the fact that the wind there was came perpendicular to the course (river Seine) and was blocked or diverted by trees and buildings.[2]

Final results[3][edit]

Two separate races were sailed. No combined results were made.[1]
