Summary

Seventeen (17) boats started and in the first race, eight of them were disqualified when they prematurely crossed the start line, including all of those who would win medals. The Spanish team of Theresa Zabell and Patricia Guerra won the fourth and six races to take the lead and held on in the seventh race to win the gold medal. Zabell would defend her gold medal in this event in 1996 but with a different crew member. The New Zealand crew of Jan Shearer and Leslie Egnot won the final race to move up to a silver medal, which was their third win the series. Bronze went to the United States, skippered by JJ Isler, who in 1995 made history when she was the skipper for Mighty Mary USA-34, the first all-female crew to challenge for the America’s Cup.
