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. The finish line was shortened to just north of Craven Cottage and despite Brian on safety boat doing a sterling job as ever his claim that 'the tide is about to turn' was about as optimistic as Brexit being completed by 31st October. Nonetheless the boats were serenaded back to the Club by Mamma Mia II playing in Bishops Park and a party at Thames RC, with the half moon high in the sky - welcome to the inaugaral 'moonlight series'!
