Re: Interesting Sailboats

Some of you are awaiting pictures and videoís about our first experiences with the Pogo 12.50.
Please excuse me for the clicks, I didnít succeed to obtain embedded codes for this material .


Really flat bottom...

Upwind, still nice & easy, but remember what Paulo teached us about wave drag. Believe me, heís right!

So we much prefer this :

Watch the changes of the apparent wind, thatís why the NKE autopilot also provides a true wind mode.

Around 10 knots, no stressÖ

Entering Dover (yes, we obtained permission ), just to show you the rigged inner forestay and staysail, just in case.

Olympic pic in St. Catharineís.

Sandwich hull + carbon mast + laminate solent + dyneema halyard + performant stopper = extreme rigidity => donít push it, or take the consequences .

And finally a small tribute to my beloved Club .

Kind regards,
