The boats in the Mini 6.50 class are generally easy to spot: short, wide, radical and adventurously over rigged. Nevertheless, the sailing gnomes are fully suitable for the ocean and are looking forward to a rapidly growing fan base, not just among the ranks of future offshore heroes.
The French shipyard Pogo Structures has completely redesigned its series boat for the Mini 6.50 class once again and, with the Pogo 3, is presenting a very modern design by Guillaume Verdier with a noticeably voluminous bow.
The Pogo 3 can be seen as a German premiere at the boot trade fair in Düsseldorf (Hall 15, Stand B 13). The YACHT test editorial team had already put the ocean dwarf to the test. The extensive exclusive test will soon be available for reading in YACHT, issue no. 3/2015. The magazine will be published on January 21, 2015.
Until then, we don't want to withhold the first photos of the strong wind test off Lorient in France from our readers. Here is the YACHT gallery:
