Summary

The event was affected by the US-led boycott of the 1980 Olympics and an alternate Flying Dutchman regatta was held in Luxembourg for the boycotting nations, and four the top seven nations in Tallinn raced under the Olympic flag rather than their national colors. The event was dominated by the Spanish crew of Alejandro Abascal and Miguel Noguer, who won three races, had one second, and two fourths, and were so far ahead that they were able to skip the final race, having clinched the gold medal.
