Midweek 2019 - congratulations Nigel

Congratulations to Nigel for wrapping up the 2019 Midweek series tonight. With no pressure to race as he had the series in the bag Nigel came 2nd but impressively was 7 minutes ahead of the next laser with a further 5 lasers to follow - time for the laser fleet to up their game. Well done to Alan for winning tonight and being the only South Bank entrant in what turned out to be a race where nav lights were required - summer is well and truly over.
