Pogo 12.50

This is time to charter for many. Here another boat that you can charter and it is not the typical charter boat. It seems a lot of fun to me, I mean to charter a Pogo 12.50, on the beautiful Greek waters.

And the last leg is on, from Lorient to Galway. This one will be fundamental for the 2th place. Puma, Camper and Telefonica are fighting for it. Groupama has a solid lead.

On the race track Telefonica is leading, Camper, Puma and Groupama are following:

Vor70 guys on the fast lane

When they where in Lorient Cammas invited the competition to a ride on the fast lane. He invited Chris Nicholson and Mike Sanderson to a ride on his other Groupama. The guys were impressed

Vor 70

They are almost there, I mean on the finish line and all leading boats passed Fastnet Rock at minutes to each other.



Camper is leading, Groupama is 2th. He has only to finish in 4th place to win the race, never mind the in port race.

Hi, thanks for posting. Welcome to sailnet and to this thread

That's a nice looking boat. The bow seems different. Any information about the purpose of that shape?

Regards

Paulo

Everything I know about the Pogo's I have pretty much learned from you and Eric (love to here some updates from his purchase). I have been following those boats and saw some of the 40S2's in Newport for the Atlantic Cup. So I do not know more than they are making steps in the development. I scan Finot's site occasionally but no news there either. The 50 would be my dream cruiser after I develop that multi-million dollar mobile app

Vor 70

They needed a 4th place for an overall victory and they come in 2th. The French and Franck Cammas won the VOR in style.

Cammas said: "This is a dream come true. The first book I read was about the withebread..."

It is a first time a rookie team won the race.

Big fight for the first place on this leg between Puma, Groupama and
Camper.

Camper won the leg and with that probably managed to claim the 2th overall place on the race.



This was a great edition with different leaders and several boats fighting for the victory.

Vendee Globe

Now that the VOR is almost finished, let's start to look at the Vendee that will start 4 months from now.

Skippers - Vendée Globe

18 guys and a lady are in and more 8 are trying to find a budget. Personally I find quite unfair that Dee Caffari has any problem in finding a budget : How many guys do you know that have made a non stop solo circumnavigation on both directions? With the wind and against the wind? Not many, she is the only girl that had done it, a fearless lady and a great sailor.

Among the ones that are in the majority are French but we have 3 Brits, two Swiss, one Spanish and one Italian.

Among the ones that are still trying to find a budget there are more 4 Brits.

The truth is that there is easier for the French to find a budget simply because sail as a sport is bigger than in any other place, I mean regarding audiences and coverage and that makes it easier to find investors and a budget.
