Long Beach Race Week is one of the largest events on the Southern California racing calendar. It has also been the host for the Open 5.70 Pacific Coast Championships for the last two years. For the 3rd Pacific Coast Championship boats travelled from all over California to compete and try to take the title from the two time winner – Team Festa. There were 15 boats on the start line – the largest one-design fleet at Long Beach Race Week which had a total of 140+ boats competing on three race courses.

With the tooling for the Pogo 2 about to clear U.S. Customs and pretty much most of the production details now cleared out, we are ready to launch production of the Pogo 2 in the USA. We already have 3 Pogo 2 to build and hope that after the first boats built, sailed and raced, many of you will join the class and enjoy everything that a mini 6.50 boats have to offer.
In the meantime, Jerome Sammarcelli (Open Sailing President) is going to visit (more…)
