Alfonso Domingos & Bernardo Santos (POR)

 Nomination

 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].
