Sorry to hear about that accident...I hope you will be back in full form soon.

I am finally at my winter home after having prepared the boat for the winter in Fumicino. Last day of sailing between Ponza and Fumicino was a great sailing day with lots of surfing...but at 11, 12K, far away from the speed you get on the Pogo. Anyway it was great fun and the surfing seemed never end.

Never being surfing for so much time, sometimes close to 1 minute, it was great fun anyway. I was sailing on 20/30K winds under double reefed main and just a bit of genoa.

I now I could go faster but it seems that my wife gets scared more easily than yours so I make a point to make her feeling always safe, otherwise I guess that I would end up sailing alone. Can you believe that I managed never broach the boat in several thousands of nm? Being close, but always able to recover. Of course that means I could go faster but that's the way it is.

Anyway my wife is not scared anymore to go over 10k and that is a big improvement. Maybe she will keep growing in confidence and one day let me explore the boat limits

The guy from the factory that some years ago test sailed the boat for the first time (with a crew) said that they surfed at 18K with 30k wind...and with a spinnaker

Of course I cannot imagine me flying a spinnaker alone with 30k of wind and I take also a lot of load in my boat, including about 500kg of tankage and all the stuff I need to cruise in comfort. I guess that boat should be about 1000kg lighter, not counting the weight of the crew, but that on racing boat works like movable ballast and can be put where it is needed.

Anyway I have no doubt that even if my boat is a stable boat downwind the Pogo will be much stiffer and easy to sail on that sailing point...also more easy than that racing boat on the movie and that is what Pogo's are about: Downwind speed with ease.

Regards

Paulo

It is said that there are 2 bowsprit lengths available. Does anyone know about this? What will be the advantage of a shorter one?

The boat looks great...except on the interior and that's a pity. Why the hell do you need a settee on the galley on that position? That space could and should be used to improve the galley.

They could also have find a better location for the liferaft.











Regarding the bowsprits, maybe one for IRC racing (with crew) and other to solo race?

When someone reads the Yacht.de test please post the general idea for us.

Paulo

Re: Interesting Sailboats

My kind of boat. the life raft is located where you can't stand anyway its the swim ladder that is in a bad position with the back stay in the way. its a narrow cabin top so the galley has to be in the center of the boat. whats the head clearance. I am starting to look for this type of boat. its maybe time to upgrade to a little more modern boat. something with smaller headsails for short handed sailing. but love my retractable sprit. get the sail a lot further forward but does not raise the slip fee.

It will need weeks or months until the test arrives. I can send you a scan but I don't want to post it here due to copyright laws.

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Do all people here own their own personal boats or there are someone out there who is renting just for season, I am considering different options so gathering information before I decide.

Borrasca

Some days ago on this year's edition of COPPA DALLORSO (Italy) the sailing boats were caught by one of those sudden Autumn med typical sudden storms that they call "Borraca" and have some nice "Colpi di venti" (60K).

There is a fantastic video on a J80 but I am not able to post it here so you have to look on the link and I can tell you you should not miss it. The better is after the middle:

Giornale Della Vela | Paura alla Coppa Dallorso vento a pi di 60Difficilmente davanti alle nostre coste arrivano sventolate come quella che

Some less impressive ones from that race:

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Waw…
May be 60 K is a bit exaggerated (you know, Italians, Berlusconi and such things ) but this is certainly quite a blow!

As an antidote, here’s a short video of easy sailing for handicapped skippers :

Thanks to our dear friend and colleague Jim, my excellent crew/company/cameraman last Saturday.

Best regards,

Eric
