I was in Combrit last week and saw the first Pogo 50 hull being prepared for infusion. Quite impressive indeed!

But as I understand the very lightweight design means that even this impressive sailplan is quite easy to handle because the strains are much less than on a heavy displacement yacht.

I hope you agree Paulo, because otherwise even our 12.50 will be a handful!

Best regards,
