A total of 50 athletes competed across the four sailing events, representing Monaco, San Marino, Cyprus, Malta, Andorra and Iceland. The hosts proved the most successful nation, winning seven medals in all. Victory in the women's Laser Radial went to Audrey PERALDI (MON), after a final race battle with Martina TOSI (SMR), whilst Benjamin BORG (MLT) won in the 17-strong men's fleet. In Optimist, the girls' title went to Maylis DARCET (MON) and Sean BORG (MLT) made it a double win for Malta with victory in the boys' fleet.
