if I remember correctly they had said all the way it was a Verdier project and after that they modified the article and forgot to modify on the picture.
So it seems that they were wrong and lead me to post wrong information. In fact I am happy to know that Pogo and Finot/Conq maintain an old and fruitful collaboration that lead to a fantastic boats and a great number of victories.
Pascal Conq is quoted in voile magazine blog saying it was designed by him and talks about the differences to the previous model so unless something funny is going on, it is a Finot/Conq design.
Funny that nothing is said about it on the Finot/Conq site, on the facebook Structures page a question about who was the designer was not answered and the say nothing about it, nor in the Pogo main site.
OK, so I am obviously wrong. Still waiting for a cruiser/racer by Verdier...
