Only three boats competed ensuring that each participant received a medal. In the first race, the Swedish âErna-Signeâ was running well and began to draw away from the other competitors. Later the Norwegian âMagda IXâ crept nearer and nearer to the âErna-Signe,â eventually passing the Swedish boat, and then maintained the lead. The Finnish âHeatherbellâ came back from seawards but did not reach its rivals. In the second race, âErna-Signeâ had a clear lead over âMagdaâ, but soon the Norwegian boat went ahead and held the lead. The close struggle between the Swedish and the Finnish boat was very close. Even though the âHeatherbellâ was ahead of âErna Signe.â the latter finally passed it and came in second. In both races the three yachts finished in the same positions\: âMagda IXâ winning with âErna Signeâ in second and the âHeatherbellâ in third place. It was the only class of the 1912 sailing events in which no sail-off was required.
