Summary

This was a very close contest, with the Danish boat, White Lady, skippered by Ole Berntsen, narrowly winning gold over the German boat, Mutafo, with only seconds in the final race keeping the Germans from a gold medal. Berntsen had won a bronze medal in this event in 1948 and a silver medal in 1956. The US boat finished third, skippered by Lowell North, who usually raced the Star class, and would win a gold medal in that class in 1968. He would win five Star World Championships, the first in 1945 and the last in 1973. He also started his own company, North Sails, which became one of the best known sailmaking companies in the world.
