The only thing I have to review is attaching points for harnesses, permanent jacklines and handgrabs. That will be done by the Comet guys probably next winter.

Almost perfect in what I am concerned.
Congratulations Paulo!

I have signed the contract pay now a part and only finish to pay the boat when it is delivered to me in June. In the meantime the boat is going to stay on the hard. This strange deal has to do with the owner not to have to pay 21% VAT on the rest of the leasing but only half and that means the boat was less expensive for me.

Hi Paulo

Felicitations!! Chappeau! Bravo!

You will have to up our/my knowledge on the Comet as a brand.

I have no doubt that it has worked out perfectly for you.

Looks like you have got yourself a real beauty.

All the best

David

Cheers Paulo!
Let the surgeons know there is a Belgian collegue looking overt their shoulder .

This video has been recorded during the "European Yacht of the Year" trials in Barcelona. It probably illustrates the main reason why the Pogo has been elected in the "performance cruiser" category.

Of course this was a broad reach, the speciality of the Pogo. But the difference in apparent wind almost makes it an upwind course, compared to the "victim" (Grand Soleil 50'). Which is, by the way, not very well sailed: look at the sheeting angle and trim of the solent .

Best regards,

Eric

You just have to look at the broad smile on the face of the testers not to mention the yelling. Even if badly sailed the Grand Soleil 50 is a fast boat, a bit heavy. The problem is that for that wind the Grand Soleil would need a bigger Geenaker...and a lot of crew to tame it while the Pogo can go happily with the genoa and solo sailed if needed.

Of course upwind even badly sailed, the Pogo would not be a match for a Grand Soleil 50, but we are talking about a 50ft boat versus a 41ft boat, that's a huge difference in LWL.

Regards

Paulo

Some more videos from the Transquadra:

Vicariot on a JPK 10.10, first on solo (real time and handicap) and on the front pack among the fastest duos. Great race:


3 swinhoe por overlapprod

Hamon and the Sun fast 3200 that arrived 2th on real time on solo:


festa por overlapprod

And the most funny one, the one that arrived 6th on solo but second on compensated (A31) with a close encounter with a whale

The funny is that the boat is called BalleineBlanche that translates as whitewhale


baleine contre baleine por overlapprod

And for last, my old boat, a Bavaria 36 that even loaded with a lot of stuff (they even carried the back bench that I used only for a week, not to mention all the stuff for producing energy) was not the last (6 boats behind):


arrivee mercredi matin por overlapprod

Also a very special comment for a Benetau 37 that made a good race ( a lot better than the Bavaria).

eh! eh! Hetairos the beautiful mega luxury yacht that I have posted some time back and in my opinion among the most beautiful boats ever, this one:




is beating Rambler, one of the fastest racing boats, if not the fastest and leading the Caribbean 600. You can follow the race here:

2012 Fleet Tracking | Tracking | Race Information

The start:



Well, 1+ for beautiful classic styled boats: they sure can by fast. Who can deny that now?

Another victory for the Spanish in the VOR Sanya in port race. Beautiful images, with the Australian/ American Puma managing 2th place:

Since I am posting about really fast boats, let's remember this spectacular images of 100ft Rambler when he was called "Virgin Money", back in 2008:





and that's all for the night folks

Paulo,
Congrats on the new boat and I hope your surgery all went well.
I like what I see though I've never been a big fan of straight through galleys. Other than she looks the goods and lets face all is to some degree a compromise.
Cheers to you
Andrew
