There were only nine boats in this class, but the defending champion was back, Denmark’s [Poul Richard Høj Jensen]. He was joined by the same crew he had in Montréal, with [Erik Hansen] and [Valdemar Bandolowski] aboard. The Danes defended their gold medal, without too much difficulty against the weakened field, although they won the last two races to do it. One notable absence was the Canadian team of the Abbott family, which would have been a medal favorite.
