After six races, the French, Australian, and American boats all had a shot at the gold medal. The race started in very light winds, and nobody could finish within the time limit, so it was re-sailed the following day. The final race was won by New Zealand's Rex Sellers and Brian Jones but it was not enough to get them on the podium. When the French crew of Yves Loday and Nicolas Hénard finished second, and the Americans, Randy Smyth and Keith Notary, could only finish 11th, France had won gold. The Australians placed fifth in the final race, two spots away from a gold medal finish, and won the bronze medal, as New Zealand finished fourth. Sellars had won the gold medal in Tornado in 1984 and a silver medal in 1988. Smyth had also won a medal in the Olympic Tornado, a silver behind Sellars in 1984.
