Seeing Gordon this weekend

This weekend we go down to Koh Samui in Thailand for the Regatta there.  Gordon will be on our arch-rival, Baby Tonga.
See the boat blog, here.
Update, 12 June: unfortunately Gordon was unable to make it, doctor's orders post-op, told to rest.  We had close tussle with Tonga, the result at the end being -- once again, like at King's Cup last December -- that we were equal on points after 10 races, and this time we pipped Tonga on countback, as they did to us last time.  Pete Sorenson ("Soro") presented us with the "TongZena Cup" at the Prizegiving, to be fought over each time we meet each other, next time most likely at this year's King's Cup.  Overall, we were both mid-field-ish: we were forced to race in IRC 1 Division, which doesn't suit either of our boats, which are normally in a Premier IRC division for our sort of boats, but there weren't enough of us this year to form that division.
