Alfonso Domingos & Bernardo Santos (POR)

 Nomination
A more popular win you would be pushed to find. '" When the relatively diminutive Portuguese team won this year's hugely competitive Bacardi Cup with a day to spare no one begrudged them their win. Portugal's 4ger representative at Sydney has made a seamless transition to the premier keelboat class, proving particularly adept whenever difficult conditions make for a more cerebral competition ...

 Why they won
A deserving result for Portugal's stars, but where were Ben Ainslie's fans, heh? Domingos and Santos took 61% of the voting: They won an incredible Bacardi Cup' - Vasco Murta. They have my vote... but "Alfonso" is Spanish, it is Afonso please!' - Miguel Marques [sorry Miguel].
