Paul Brotherton & Mark Asquith (GBR)

 Nomination
With a combined age of more than 75 years… we reckon that even in a class that is already renowned for rewarding maturity over beauty the victory of 49er-returnee (and former gold medal-’winning’ Olympic coach to the GBR ladies) Paul Brotherton, sailing with the ‘younger’ Mark Asquith at this year’s Hyères regatta, is well worthy of this nomination. Go eat out your hearts, young GBR pups
