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?
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
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.
