Mark Reynolds And Magnus Liljedahl (USA)

 Nomination
'The A-Team'. Reynolds, two Star worlds, two Olympic golds and a silver, seven Bacardi Cups and winner of every US Olympic selections since 1988 - in the world's toughest fleet. Magnus Liljedahl, top Finn sailor and now the world's best Star crew but more important the most helpful guy in sailing. Two thoroughly good blokes!
 Why they won
A wave of support greeted Mark and Magnus' nomination, not just for being consummate Olympic sailors, but in particular for their enthusiastic efforts to support the classes in which they compete. They both support local racing clinics and also undertake much personal coaching - with sailors of all ages and nationalities. The final vote in favour of Reynolds (from San Diego) and Liljedahl (Swedish born but now based in Florida): 82%!
