* The average speed was calculated on the predicted distance of 22,600 nautical miles. In reality all boats sailed longer distances to finish the course. In fact the average speed of all boats is higher than posted.

** This performance coefficient is calculated on the predicted distance of 22,600 miles and on overall length of the boat. In reality all boats sailed longer distances to finish the course and majority of the boats had shorter waterline length than their overall length. The coefficient would be higher for many boats if detailed information on exact sailed distance and waterline length of each boat would be available. More and more boats were specially designed for later races and majority of such yachts had waterline length almost matching overall length (set by race rules). Therefore this coefficient is more fair to each competitor who took part in later races.

Disqualified competitors:
Philippe Poupon, Fleury Michon, France - capsized December 28
Bertie Reed, Grinaker, South Africa - retired January 24
Jean Yves Terlain, UAP 1992, France - retired January 8-9

This results were compiled by  Richard Boehmer.
