speed 8K wind at 60º = 7K (7.3)(7.1) (6.9)

12K wind at 70º = 8K (8.2) (7.8) (7.2)

25K wind at 110º = 10K (10.6) (10) (9.8)

25K wind at 150º = 10.5K (10.8) (11.2) (11.2).
So here we can compare a Pogo 12.50 with an Elan 380:
(black= J409 Red=D40e Blue=E380 Brown=E350 Green=Pogo 12.50)

OK, The Pogo is a bit longer, but the differences seem to be quite significant. Still this are all theoretical values...

6K wind at 70º = 6K (6.7)(6.4)(6.2) (6.8)

speed 8K wind at 60º = 7K (7.3)(7.1) (6.9) (7.7)

12K wind at 70º = 8K (8.2) (7.8) (7.2) (8.91)

25K wind at 110º = 10K (10.6) (10) (9.8) (13.7)

25K wind at 150º = 10.5K (10.8) (11.2) (11.2) (15.5).

Yes it is! However I wonder how important that is. Aren't other things much more important when you are on your way?
I think more interesting is the question how much more bumpy a ride with the Pogo is...

A real comfort-plus of the Pogo is the cockpit: Really huge and without an annoying wheel.

And regarding space for the dinghy: Pogostructures writes about the 12.50 "At the back of the boat, a free space will receive the dingy while you change moorings."
