Summary

This was the fourth straight Olympics in which women had raced the Europe class as a one-person dinghy event, but it would be the last, and was replaced in 2008 by the Laser Radial class. The heavy favorite was 2003-04 World Champion and the 2003 European Champion, Siren Sundby of Norway. She won five of the first 10 races to take a big lead into the final race, but she did have to start that race to win, which she did by placing a conservative 12th, which brought her the gold medal. With her favorite class discontinued at the Olympics, she would switch to Yngling for the 2008 Games, finishing ninth. Silver medalist Lenka Šmídová of the Czech Republic would also abandon the Europe class, switching to 470 at the 2008 Olympics, and placing seventh.
