Re: Interesting Sailboats

When I last visited the Structures yard last winter I was suprised to see they were working on a successor for their Pogo 40 S2 class 40. But Christian Bouroullec was convinced this 2010 design was already becoming outdated so they asked Pascal Conq (Finot-Conq) to design the S3.
The Transat Jacques Fabre seems to confirm his feeling: the first Pogo S2 Groupe Picoty will only be able to battle for the 4th place if nothing bad happens to the leading trio.
And although the Pogo S2 Campagne de France is now 2nd in the Class 40 ranking, this will probably change when the results of this Transat are taken into account.

So things are moving fast in the Class 40 scene, as does the brand new Pogo 40 S3:

Pogo 40S3-go to Lorient on Vimeo

I don’t think they will be making a cruising version of that one .

Best regards,

Eric
